    This Artist Makes Extremely Detailed Portraits Using Fire And It's Impressive

    Art it with fire.

    For 55-year-old Canadian artist Steven Spazuk, his medium of choice is fire.

    Spazuk practices the ancient technique of fumage or using a kerosene lamp or candle to make smoke impressions.

    And his process is totally mesmerizing to watch.

    I MEAN.


    And the resulting portraits are mind-blowing.

    Smoke > pencil

    "When I put the flame to paper, I don’t know what I'm going to get and that's the pure joy of working with soot."
