We all have our own memories of growing up and using crayons. I know when I was a child, I absolutely LOVED Crayola crayons. Whenever they would put out a new color, I made it my mission to make sure I had it! I must have owned every mega-pack that was sold in stores.
Artists are forever coming up with new and original ways to create art, like the artist in this story, Christian Faur, who has come up with a creative and meticulously exact way to create art by working with crayons. And he's able to create all of these masterpieces without ever touching a single crayon to a piece of paper.
Faur hand casts each and every one of his crayons before setting out to create these masterpieces. In this picture, there are more than 8,000 crayons!
To create his works of art, Faur stacks each of the crayons with precision. He calls them "pixels" and each one is meticulously placed in a wooden art frame.
Faur labors with his pixels to create a new form of art that he says "balances the qualities of both photography and sculpture."
If you'd like to see some of his works, you can find them on his Instagram page as well as his website. Or you can also go to art galleries to visit them. This work was created for the Sherrie Gallerie in Columbus, OH.
As stated on Faur's website, he creates "imagery that makes up this new body tends to focus on isolated elements represented as children, barns, water towers, etc. within indeterminate landscapes, which are intended to reference the individual crayon whose solitary existence, like that of the individual element, is rendered obsolete in the amalgamate."
Using his crayons, Faur has created a few different series that tell an assortment of stories, such as "Melodies," "Forgotten Children," as well as others.
Take a look at some of his creations in the photos below:
