CRAYON SCULPTURES BY CHRISTIAN FAUR
Absolutely stunning! Christian Faur’s crayon art exemplifies a unique and exciting new technique. Instead of utilizing traditional medium such as oil paint, pastels, or watercolors, Faur turns to a material from our childhood: the crayon.
Faur works with this familiar object in a novel way. Using crayons like pixels, he arranges thousands upon thousands of colorful handmade crayons into beautiful and elaborate works of art that allude to aspects of Pointillism and digital photography. Each piece has a pixelated look. The crayons are set on their ends with the tip pointing up and each represents a value from the photograph the image is based on.

I just want to melt them down.
