Steve Spazuk from Quebec, Canada has a unique method of drawing. It involves burning paper and using the soot from candles to color. He then uses various tools to shade it.

The pieces he makes vary from small to huge murals composed of many delicately crafted works. In the video you can see one of his works scaling most of a wall.

Steve Spazuk was featured in our daily cartoon in 2012!

Smoke Art

Steve isn’t the only fire art we’ve noticed. At Ripley’s in St. Augustine we have a work by Daniel Diehl that stands two and half feet tall and depicts the famous John Lennon.

Wilmer Lam

Similarly Wilmer Lam who currently lives in Orlando, Florida goes through as many as 10 packs of cigarettes a day. He doesn’t smoke them: He uses them to draw portraits from the ash!

Created by Rob Tarbell, this circus scene is made by hanging the canvas overhead and using rising smoke to make the picture. You can see this oddity in Orlando, Florida!
