1. Steven Spazuk is a artist from Canada who has mastered the technique of fumage which is using a kerosene lamp or candle to make smoke impressions.
2. I found Steven Spazuck in a article by Buzzfeed http://www.buzzfeed.com/alisoncaporimo/fire-art-ftw#.iaj7WP93https://vimeo.com/107263462
3. The subjects of Spazuck art are created when he responds to the images he creates in the canvas
4. The elements of art emphasized in his work consist of the textures and values he creates with the soot residue.
5. The principles of designs that Spazuk uses are movement, shape, and value.
6. Spazuk's art gives off a mysterious puzzling mood and feeling towards its viewers that is very hard to to find in other artists' work.
7. Some of his art has addressed issues such as awareness to nature and the population decline of birds. What Spazuk wants is for every individual to perceive his artwork in their own perspective because we are all part of a community.
8. Steven Spazuk has a unique technique that is quite mesmerizing to watch and his artwork has intricate details and fluidity that can't be created with just pencil. His artwork is worth sharing because it's remarkable and everyone should have the chance to experience and perceive it.
Spontaneity and chance are the heart and soul of his creative process. He does not censor. He does not direct. Spazuk opens himself to the experience. This in-the-moment creative practice coupled with the fluidity of the soot, creates a torrent of images, shadows and light. Fuelled by the quest of a perfect shape that has yet to materialize, he concentrate in a meditative act and surrender to capture the immediacy of the moment on canvas.
The human body fascinates him. Bodies in a perpetual metamorphosis are the language with which he express his thoughts on the human condition: emotions, opinions, stories that are born of his uncensored psyche. Spazuk often works piece by piece, collecting a multitude of unique elements that he assembles into mosaics. Entities that, once grouped together, afford a different meaning and provide a new perspective that is both novel and complementary. He sees fragments of things, events, people, as a powerful metaphor of modern life and, even more so, of the way we perceive things through our senses and our minds. His work expresses how every one of us is a constituent fragment of the huma
