Crayola Carving!

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I’ve always thought of carving and sculpting as extremely impressive when it comes to the art world.  It takes a powerful imagination and a skilled hand to take away just the right pieces of the preexisting medium to create a something beautiful and/or realistic.  Diem Chau’s crayon carvings are an amazing example of why I find this type of art so remarkable.  The amount of detail that is put into each of these tiny carvings makes me want to break out my Crayolas and start cutting away parts till I’ve got tiny works of art that look half this gorgeous.  The thing that I find most interesting about these crayon carvings is the fact that they are pieces of art made out of a tool for making art.  I just feel like there is something poetic about that.  Check out some of Chau’s carvings below.
