Crayon Portrait by Christian Faur
I’ve posted work by Christian before, but I think the new work he’s recently sent over to Design Boom is his best yet. Check out the links below to see some more shots of his incredible portraits.
The exhibition, “The Art of Video Games,” explores 40 years of video games as cultural artifacts. It features interactive games people can actually play, pieces of gaming memorabilia and visual displays that highlight the artistic work done by developers.
And as the first such exhibition to appear in a major museum, it’s been a huge hit. Museum officials said their opening last month drew nearly 23,000 people, putting it in the top five highest visitation days ever. Chris Melissinos, guest curator of the exhibition, believes the timing is right because the current generation of museum-goers have grown up with video games.
Finally videogames get more recognition than simply an “entertainment platform”. I definitely need to find a way to see this exhibition.
I don’t know why, but these photos remind me of my childhood visiting my grandparents. On the drive to my grandparent’s house, I would always marvel at the giant light-up star on El Paso’s mountain range.

Nothing like the art perfectly describing itself.
