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. This eBook showcases Christian Faur’s newest work in a nontraditional way that allows the reader to enjoy both the sculptural and pictorial aspects of the work. The reader can interact with the many photographs in the book in a way that mimics the gallery experience more closely than traditional print media could.
