Steven Spazuk Beautifully Brings Pieces Together to Create Art

Small pieces together speak louder than a single one, as shown by the stunning portfolio of work by Steven Spazuk. The Canadian artist discovered a unique technique to create monochromatic portraits that show a new side of art and beauty.

For over ten years, Spazuk has been using candles and torch flames to burn papers and draw on the soot. The result is mesmerizing as these larger-than-life pieces are a recollection of burned paper gathered together to create an entire drawing. The artist declares, "I often work piece by piece, collecting a multitude of unique elements that I assemble into mosaics. Entities that, once grouped together, afford a different meaning and provide a new perspective that is both novel and complementary." These mosaics are expressive and meaningful as they contain the soul of humanity.

The draws by Steven Spazuk might be dark but the aesthetically shiny.
