Incredible Images Made Only From Crayon Tips

A few days ago I stumbled upon an incredible artist, Christian Faur. I think he is the first one who made a drawing with crayons, but not in the old way…you know, like making lines on a paper. No, what he did was amazing: he assembled more than one hundred thousand hand cast crayons of varying colors and shades to produce a body of work.

The product is a series of photorealistic landscapes and figurative images that are formed at the surface of the thousands of tightly packed crayon tips. The imagery that makes up this new body tends to focus on isolated elements represented as children, barns, water towers, etc. within determinate landscapes, which are intended to reference the individual crayon whose solitary existence, like that of the individual element, is rendered obsolete in the amalgamate. (Christian Faur)
