My Top Four Picks for Innovative Crayon Artists
1. Photographs Composed of Crayons by Christian Faur
“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.”-Info From http://www.christianfaur.com/
Herb Williams works with many different mediums and materials, Herb is one of the only individuals in the world with an account with Crayola. He creates original sculptures out of individual crayons that may require as many as hundreds of thousands. Mr. Williams artwork hold records with Ripley’s and Guinness . His sculptures have been placed in public arenas, such as children’s hospitals, corporate lobbies, museum walls, and the White House. -Info From http://www.herbwilliamsart.com/#/bio/4575695378
