Steven Spazuk – Fire Drawings

Quebec-based artist Steven Spazuk has a the most unusual technique of drawing: he exposes the canvas to fire and uses the soot left in the surface to etch his drawings. The idea came to him in 2001 and he doesn’t show signs of quitting this technique. He creates smaller scale drawing that look like smokey silhouettes and also larger pieces that are made from hundreds of smaller works, puzzled together to create the most amazing drawings. The works are remarkable, the detailing is incredible and the technique is flawless. Enjoy these works or art!
