Christian Faur’s pixelated crayon art is incredible simply to admire at face value; like any good piece of artwork, however, there’s far more to be appreciated beneath its surface.

Christian Faur’s work begins with hundreds of thousands of crayons, grouped tightly together to make a pixelated portrait or landscape. He’s also developed a mapping system that assigns a color to a letter; these individual colors are scattered throughout the piece to create subtexts--the crayon equivalent of a font.

Faur places a key to his alphabet code at the bottom of each piece so intrepid viewers can decode the mysteries that lie within the art. Incredible. Stats for Pixelated Crayon Art Trending: Older & Mild
