Chubby Wax Crayons

Chubby Wax Crayons is a project by artist Paul Muir and is a collection of work produced over a three-year period whilst visiting a psychoanalyst.

The artworks were created using cubby wax crayons on paper of the lowest quality. Unlike art therapy, (where art is implicit to the therapeutic process), these drawings, using primitive materials, that are usually associated with very young children, brought about by a chance moment and not a conscious use of art materials.

Neotists gave Paul a platform to be able to talk about the work at one of the PechaKucha events and you can listen to his talk to find out about the emotional journey Paul went on.

These chubby wax works are dedicated to the most remarkable women Paul has ever met and brought together as a body of work on their own website:
