The world of art creation is getting more bizarre by the second, first there was that girl that paints with her lips and now we got ourself an artist that draws very detailed portraits using fire. This is the work of artist Steven Spazuk who departed from traditional acrylic painting and back in 2001 decided to create his paintings using the medium of fire.

He would have a cropped canvas, hold each piece and using a candle fire’s soot burns the paper and the result is pure genius. What fascinates me the most is that fire is not something that can be controlled at all, unless you introduce Mr. Fire extinguisher but the case with Steven is causing the fire.

I think his work is really amazing and takes a lot of patience, you can see more on his website and you can watch the mini-documentary below about him and his work.
