Art with crayons

Who knew you could create amazing pieces of art with crayons. Thing is, its not what you think. No drawing is involved.

It is, in fact, art with crayons. The crayons are the art. Carved into amazing figures by diem chau. Here is his piece called "Installation View"

Her mediums are extensive. From crayons "grandma in beehive" (below) to "pencil girl" (below) to paint, traditional or not, all in rich and vibrant tones of life.

Diem Chau:
"I consider myself an artist whose medium is stories, especially those that are primarily passed on orally. Coming from a nomadic childhood, what few possessions my family had were necessities. The things of greatest value to us were stories contributed by friends and family. Embedded in these stories are connections to the past, our culture and an occasional escape from reality."

i suppose crayons are made of wax which is easier to carve than soft lead ...
