Lionel Bawden is an Australian artist that creates striking sculptures out of coloring pencils. Although this isn't the first time a creative has endeavored to use this medium in an artistic way other than drawing with it, Jessica Drenk and Robert Levine are two artists that come to mind, there is something truly breathtaking about Lionel Bawden's visions.

The organic forms that Lionel Bawden creates with coloring pencils are so abstract, it would be hard to determine what material he was using if not told. From geometric shapes to crystal-like formations, Lionel Bawden "explores themes of flux, transformation and repetition as preconditions to our experience of the physical world, essential to the construction of identity."
