Christian Faur's crayon art

This sure beats anything I ever created with crayons!



Christian Faur:
My earliest memories of making art involve the use of wax crayons. I can still remember the pleasure of opening a new box of crayons: the distinct smell of the wax, the beautifully colored tips, everything still perfect and unused. Using the first crayon from a new box always gave me a slight pain. Through a novel technique that I have developed, I again find myself working with the familiar form of the crayon.

I was always envious of the kids who had the giant packages of crayons that included a crayon sharpener.

Whoa. Super cool. Reminds me of Light Brights too.

I loved new crayons but they didn't stay pristine too long in our household. My sisters and I had a big container that we stored them in and they were mostly broken, melted and stuck together.
