Christian Faur has a degree in physics, so it’s no surprise to learn that he applies mathematical principals to his artwork, yielding perfectly pixelated portraits. We visit his studio in Granville, Ohio, where he creates thousands of hand-cast wax crayons for use in his paintings that are meticulously stacked with color, depth, texture and meaning.
