Carved Crayons – Part 1 – Pop Culture

Hoang Tran, founder of Wax Nostalgic, not only took his crayons back but also Tran turned them into a canvas. Taking inspiration from pop culture, he hand carves crayons into intricate wax sculptures. Scroll down to see his gallery of work.

“Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the ‘creative bug’ is just a wee voice telling you, ‘I’d like my crayons back, please.’”
– Hugh Macleod
