Burning art

Now from the title you would think I am talking about burning artwork, but in a way you are both right and wrong.  I found a work of art that was created by candle smoke.  Yes you heard right, candle smoke.  The artist attaches paper to the ceiling and then holds a candle so far away from the paper depending on the shading that he needs.  They he puts the papers together to get his work of art.  Make sure you look at the details.


 
What are your thoughts on this artwork?  What would you like to do that would seem unrealistic?

  1. i am surprisedhat the paper wouldnt burn when shading the darkers spots. i am amazed on how he could get the small shaded spots and lines.

  2. that would be really hard to make. if i would try i would end up burning the paper. it must take forever to make that.

  4. it is very interesting to how much detail the artsit gets in his work. i think the artist has to be very patient to get just the right amount of smoke on the paper. i dont think i could be that patient to do this.

  5. The amount of detail in this artwork is amazing! Making this type of art would take extreme paitence and caution. You would also have to have a really good eye for detail. Wish I could do that!

  6. these photos look very old but they are made on a grid. they have to be done very good and there can not be any mistakes. i could have done it way better than what they did.

  7. To me, this seems impossible. Even if i tried, it would take me a lifetime to make one half decent.

    ReplyDelete
  27. This is really unique and cool I never heard of anyone doing this type of thing. Seems kind of dangerous as well since you have to use a candle to burn paper. It looks like it would take a lot of time to, you would really have to be careful doing this.

    ReplyDelete
  28. genuenly interesting. you know what would make this better? bacon. the sweet delicious porky goodness used as art

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is actually kind of cool. I think this is a neat style of art and i would like to see more of it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. This is a cool style of art. I feel like thinking of doing this must have been extremely random. I dont think we should ever try this because it seems difficult.

    ReplyDelete
  31. this art style is very cool, but i think it would take along time to do. it looks very challanging. it would take alot of skill to do that style of art.

    ReplyDelete
  32. thats cool and old haha. it looks hard to do. i would do that.

    ReplyDelete
  33. this is hot! i would enjoy doing this in art class some day

  36. this guy is old. he reminds me of my grandpapi. my grandpapi is old too. he is one of those old people who sit at a gas station in the mournings dringing coffee with all of th eother old people.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I really like this guys technique. I like how he uses a candle and the smoke to make all of the details. Its crazy how some people are so talented and they can do this very carefully and make it turn out to actually be something.

    ReplyDelete
  38. This is probably one of my favorite pieces of art work that i have ever seen. It is so unique in so many ways. This is definitely one thing that i would like to try in art. Although it would be very very hard to get the specific details or the glasses, and other characteristics, but i think it is worth the way they look.

    ReplyDelete
  39. He's doing that and I can barely light a candle, wow just wow. BURN BABY BURN.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I really like this one i dont how he doesnt start the paper on fire. i would like him to do one of these of me.

    ReplyDelete
  41. This is really cool. If I tried this I would just end up with a pile of ashes. I would accidentally burn the paper instead of creating art work with it

    ReplyDelete
  42. This is really neat. this guy obviously has a great imagination. I don't know how he doesn't set the pictures on fire.

    ReplyDelete
  43. That would be really hard to make. If i would try i would end up burning the paper. It must take forever to make that. This guy has an amazing imagination.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Holy Cow!!! This guy is very talented if he can get that much detail with candle smoke. I would like to try the candle smoke idea or even burning certain papers of wood to make a project.

    ReplyDelete
  45. This would be a lot of fun, but I would run out of patience for this project.

    ReplyDelete
  46. This must take an extreme amount of patience and skill to be able to do sucha thing.

    ReplyDelete
  47. nah i dont think i am that talented to do this

    ReplyDelete
  48. i think this is cool. but i don't really want to this i think it would take a long time.

    ReplyDelete
  49. This is amazing, but would be very difficult. I feel like you would have to start over alot to make it the way you wanted it to be. Because you can not control smoke or fire. This would take alot time.

    ReplyDelete
  50. That would be really hard to make. It would take me years to do this. I would probably just burn the whole paper.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I really like this idea. i like how good it looks! id love to try this for and art project

    ReplyDelete
  52. I think that this is very unique and extremely hard to achieve the look that you would want. I think that it would take a lot of time and patience.

    ReplyDelete
  53. This art is very cool. I like how big it is. I would like to go skydiving, its seems unrealistic because im scared of hights

    ReplyDelete
  54. This guy is crazy! I cannot believe he does this with candle smoke. I like the way he does it squaer by square. I would be scared to start the whole thing on fire!

    ReplyDelete
  55. this looks very cool but very dangerous. i wouldnt mind trying it.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I really like this kind of art. A little bit because I like to play with fire. I would surly think that they wouldn't look real. If you are burning them they should look like they are about a hundred years old.

    ReplyDelete
  57. This art is very cool but it looks like it would be very challenging to do. I think that it would take lots of time and practice to be able to do this and make it look. There are lots of details and it looks like you would have to be really skilled to be able to make this look good. But i think it would be fun to try sometime

    ReplyDelete
  58. This looks like it took lots of time and effort to make this happen. Nothing would probably fall into the right place you want it to but sometimes that is just what happens in todays modern art

    ReplyDelete
  59. this is very interesting. However it looks quite difficult. It would be soemthing very fun to try

    ReplyDelete
  60. This artist is incredible. I couldn't imagine the strength it would take both mentaly and phyicaly to make something this awesome. I can't even draw a realistic face with a pen and paper

    ReplyDelete
  61. Oh my lord! How did anyone come up with this technique?

    ReplyDelete
  62. Oh my lord! How did anyone come up with this technique?

    ReplyDelete
  63. I have never seen anything like this. It would be cool to try.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I wonder how people thought of this! But also who was the first to accomplish this. And yet Get all of these details and would you need different types of paper.

    ReplyDelete
  65. This the coolest thing ever! If I tried this I would just burn the paper but this would be cool to watch someone do.

    ReplyDelete
  66. it is cool that he can make pictures using a candle. it has to take a long time for this to turn out and not burn what he is using to make the picture on

    ReplyDelete
  67. This is really cool how small it is. It is really creative and I wonder how long took to make it. I would like to do something like this.

    ReplyDelete
  68. That takes some artistic talent. Being able to make art with a candle and not start anything on fire. also the picture looks so authentic. It is a real master piece.

    ReplyDelete
  69. That sounds really cool but hard we should make it a test and try and do it.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Truly brilliant, the artist used such a common object to make the portrait very realistic. If I were to attempt this form of art I might accidently burn the whole piece itself
