What is it? #1

Okay, we are going to see if you can guess the medium that is used in this artwork.  I want you to look at the pictures and see if you can guess what the artist is using.

Give me your first impression and remember that it is a low relief sculpture.  That means it comes off of the background slightly.
In this picture you can see that his medium is sticking up from those cube shaped boxes.  Do you have any ideas yet what he uses?


Does this picture help you zero in on what he is using for his medium?

If you still haven't figured it out or are not sure you can now Google his name, Christian Faur and figure out what he uses, Otherwise, I am curious what your first thoughts were?  What did you think he used and did you find out what it really is?

  1. The first one you can't really tell what it is. The last one i think he used crayons. Using crayons is a really cool and creative idea. I love the colors and how he used all the different shade of colors to make so much detail. Also how the person looks realistic in a way is really cool.

  4. It almost looks like they are crayon tips. It is a very good idea to do this and looks like it took lots of time and effort. It looks like they had to arrange they crayons to make it look like a good picture and get lots of the shades right and stuff. Very good and clever idea

  9. It does look like crayon tips, and it also looks like that wouldn't be easy to do. The artist used a wide viriaty of colors and figuring out where he would put those colors would have taken a wile.

  10. It looks like they are using the tips of crayons or some sort of bead. They used nice colors to pop out the look of the person. This is very nice.

  11. I looked it up (these are hard.) When I looked at it the first time I thought it was sewing pins. Then I looked it up and I think that is preatty cool.

  12. Oh my, I use to have a thing where you put little pegs in and make a colorful design and it'd light up and look really awesome. I bet he is using something like it. It takes a long time, especially if you make something so integrate as this. this is awesome.

  13. It looks like some light brights

  14. it's either a light bright thing or it's those things that are in walmart and the toy stores that you put your hand into the box thingy and it forms the shape of your hand or what ever object it is you put in it

  16. I originally thought they were pegs from a board, but after looking Christian up I found out that he uses the tips of crayons. That is such a creative idea. I wonder if his art would still be visible if you melted the crayon. This must have been time consuming!

  18. I thought that it was pretty cool for him to use crayons as a medium. I originally thought that it was pegs, but then when it showed the side view i finally knew what it was. It kinda of reminded me of pixelated art though

    ReplyDelete
  19. I first thought it was colored pegs. Then i searched it and it was crayon tips! Really cool!

  20. this is like our color skeam project. they look like crayon tips. again another creative piece of art

  21. All of these artists are very detailed with their work which makes it even cooler since they use such different small mediums. It took me awhile to figure out the medium but once i saw it from a different angle I was able to figure out it was crayons. I think this is one of the cooler ones because he uses more color.

  22. It looks like light brights. I had a light bright when I was younger, but I never made anything this cool. I like the slightly basic look to it, flared with color. Good design.

  23. This art has a lot of bright colors that work well together to make the image. It looks like a very complicated version of what we are doing in art.

  24. I thought he was using the top part of pins. But i figured out that it was crayons and that is awesome. I wonder how much money he spent on all of those crayons.

  25. These are really cool! The different colors make it looke really good. It kinda looks like stainless glass. But with the crayon tips its really unquie!

  26. All the colors put together make it look cool and just pop out. Its amazing how you can see and point out every detail the artists has done.

  27. This one is hard to call as well. It looks like they used a bunch of different colored tacks that they put into a bulletin board? I would not at all stand by this conclusion though.

  28. Omg i that's really cool. I wonder how much work he put into it. It looks like a bunch of different color lights. Awesome

  29. Its mixture of colors is very god, and how we did it in art class it is also nice. It turned out better then the ones we ddid.

  30. I can't really tell exactly what it is but I can guess it is marker caps or tons of pens. It's very creative and great way to use color

    ReplyDelete
  31. I think it is actually very neat and at first i thought it was those little color things that you can play with on the little boards but i'm not sure how he managed to use those it was very creative.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm not sure what it is made out of but i think its cool how they made it look like a puzzle type thing. They used the colors really nicely.

  33. This is very neat. I love all the colors, it makes it look really pretty.

  36. i really like this peice because its really unique and colorful. i think i have seen something like it at the childrens museum. i do however like how its on a wide scale.

    ReplyDelete
  37. It looks really cool it looks like he almost stacked together little pieces or they kinda look like tic tacs.

  40. I never thought that color pegs can used to make such outstanding pieces of art. I really like it.

  41. Looks time consuming, and I mean that in a good way, as in the time they took on this project went to their advantage and it worked out good.

    ReplyDelete
  42. It is very similar to what we did in class, but that was more easy compared to this. In many ways it is better then i did, and i think it is in its own way amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  43. At first i thought he used pin box toys boards. You push a image in and it pops up. After looking up the artists name i found out it is color crayons.

    ReplyDelete
  44. i like how it is made of color crayons and it it cool how they did that.

  45. this kind of looks like crayons and they are diffrent colors to make the picture stand out more.

  46. i had no idea what it was so i had to google it and it was crayons. than i could actually start to see that it was crayons. i think that would be complicated because if you didnt have the same right color it wouldnt look right it would just look like random color spots everywhere

    ReplyDelete
  47. It looks like the artist used crayons to make this. It would be really hard to make something this complex with a material that simple. It would be hard to find exactly the right color that you need too.

    ReplyDelete
  48. This looks like it was painted, but with crayons. Each crayon head creates its' own dot. It reminds me of the pointillism style of painting.

    ReplyDelete
  49. It took me a a few minutes to figure it out, but upon a closer look they are crayons! The artist used such a common object to make a beautiful piece. The contrast of colors works very well

  50. to me at first it looked like those light if that bright light thing. but i googled it and it was crayons. thats super cool

    ReplyDelete
  51. It is brilliant to use a simple art supply such as crayons to create a realistic image. It kind of confuses the eye on closer inspection. But very beautiful!

  52. At first glance, I thought that it was made from the pegs from Light Brights. Then when I took a closer look at it, I realize that he used a more creative way of making art. I think using crayons, such a household item is really unique.

  53. I don't think he is using crayons because most of the time crayons have a flat tip not a smooth rounded tip. But I could be wrong.
