Another weekend has come and gone in the blink of an eye.  It’s crazy how quickly they go by.  On Friday night, the wonderful Reb Carlson and I attended a gallery opening at The Michelle Rosenfeld Gallery in the Upper East Side.  Artists featured included Andy Warhol, Picasso, Takashi Murakami, and Christian Faur.  I had never heard of Christian Faur before but the second I saw his work, I had to find out more about him.  For one of his series of works, he makes use of crayon heads as the tools utilized to create his portraits.  A set of 4 of these works are pictured below.  From afar, they look like heavily pixellated photographs but upon closer inspection, the array of different colored crayons is visible.

His paper works are also incredible as well as his paintings.

On our was home from the gallery, we also passed by the Vera Wang bridal store which happened to be having an event that night.  Since we clearly weren’t invited to it, we decided to fawn over the gorgeous dresses in the window.  Vera Wang is hands down the master at creating wedding dresses.
