Christian Faur: Complex Simplicity

Maybe one of the more formal artists we've featured on here, Christian has done some cool stuff using simple crayons in a creative way. I'm not that into his paintings and other work, but I've set up the link below to go straight to his crayon pieces.

Brek & Mathias, I know you to be artists, and I'm not sure if others contributing to this blog are as well... but I was curious if any of you have ever tried your hand at this mosaic kind of stuff in any way. If so, post some of it.

There is my attempt at a beautiful work of mosaic creation.

haha, the page didn't recognize my spacing when it posted. Oh well.

Mathias said...

i haven't really messed with it. Its way too time consuming for me. I'm not patient enough.

Breck said...

I haven't either. The most I've done was a photo mosaic that makes a big picture from smaller photos, but it's software that does it for you. I know there is a guy out there that does it by hand, pretty cool.

Also, the Jelly Belly Factory in Northern California has some pretty cool photo mosaics made from jelly beans...
