With just burnt paper and wood, Australian artist Scott Marr creates a fantastical world filled with creatures that a both familiar and foreign. What an amazing medium--I never knew that burnt art could look so fresh.

With the help of bark, charcoal and various flowers as well, Scott Marr's contemporary Australian art is experimental and unique. What I find particularly impressive is how intricately detailed each illustration is. I can't imagine how long it took him to create them.
