CHRISTIAN FAUR’S CRAYON ART

Christian Faur’s crayon art exemplifies a unique and exciting new technique. Instead of utilizing traditional medium Faur turns to a material from our childhood: the crayon. He uses individually hand cast wax crayons to explore the complexity of the pixel in digital photography. Using each crayon like a pixel, 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.

As our digital photographic and display technologies continue to advance, the pixel will eventually become so small that it will evade our awareness of its existence entirely. Faur’s work celebrates this moment of transition by deliberately raising these elemental points to our consciousness and allowing us one more good look at these colorful “rods and cones” before they disappear right in front of our eyes.
