Apartment Becomes Art Space

I spent most of my free time in the last month cleaning up a long-neglected apartment in south Tel Aviv with a group of fellow artists. We patched the many craters in the crumbling walls, hauled away mountains of trash left by past tenants, painted everything white, and built a dividing wall in the kitchen.

Crayon sculptures

Crayon sculptures. Teeny tiny sculptures created from crayons -  wax crayons. Easily destroyed by small children crayons. Not even the fat chunky crayons, but the normal, thin, 64 in a box crayons.

Crayon sculptures for $199 each. Easily destroyed wax crayon sculptures created with a deft hand and a carving knife cost $199 each. A box of 150 crayons, pre-sculpture, in a neat tower package costs $12.99 on Amazon.

 Diem Chau is the artist of the crayons, and while I think her work is quite beautiful, I also think it’s very silly. Caveat emptor, keep away from windows and heat – or your $199 just might melt away.
