Although artwork out of matches is not new, Pei-San Ng puts a unique spin on his. Instead of constructing grand sculptures or ash drawn canvases, he creates typography and simple, almost cartoonish creations.

From 'Heart of Gold' to 'Passion,' Pei-San Ng's work is lighthearted and fun. He even created a sneaker, that he later set on fire. According to Neatorama, "'Passion,' pictured above, is composed of 2,500 matches and took 24 hours to make." Stats for Matchstick Typography Trending: Older & Warm
