Art Spotting: Christian Faur’s Crayon Art

Written by Tanner

Crayon art for grownups.

When you hear the word “crayon” I doubt your first thought is “fine art.” Well, Christian Faur is about to change your perception of those brightly colored wax sticks you used to doodle with as a toddler with his out-of-the-crayola-box use of them in creating mesmerizing masterpieces! “For this body of work I have assembled more than 100,000 hand cast crayons of varying colors and shades to produce a body of work that, to the best of my knowledge, is unlike anything done before in art.” I would certainly have to agree that this art form is unlike any other, combining ‘the qualities of both photography and sculpture’ that truly made my jaw drop upon my first glance. The following are just some of my personal favorites – visit Faur’s online gallery to view more of his directional and inspirational works of genius!
