Artist Christian Faur creates sculptural portraits made from hundreds of carefully arranged crayons. Each wax tip is used as if it were an individual pixel, with his hand-cast crayons placed in upright positions that together resemble conventional portraits. Appearing like pointillist versions of vintage photographs, the dotted portraits soar into focus only head on and from a distance. Otherwise, the images embedded in the collection of crayons disappears into the seemingly random array of colors.
