In the past month, Professional Pyrographer - Chris Burns, participated in two different art shows at Sinful Inflictions in Whitby, ON. Durham Region's most infamous tattoo studio/art gallery, hosted the Scallywags Art Exhibit on April 28th and the Art Fusion Fundraiser for the Durham Humane Society on May 27th. Both shows were a big hit!
For the Scallywag Art Exhibit, Mr.Burns created a massive 3D wood sculpture that was burned in three different stages. By combining the effects of the detailed woodburning pen, with the charred shading of both a handheld butane torch and a full-sized blow torch, he was able to create a unique trifecta of pyrographic perfection.
You can view the video showcasing his submission, titled 'Ol Dirty Blackburn', at the link below.
The Art Fusion event is an annual fundraiser for the local Humane Society that burned down in Oshawa back in 2008. Sinful Inflictions hosted artists for a full day of live art, music and refreshments.
After about 6 hours of straight burning, Chris donated his custom made Pinebox Longboard with a fresh burning featuring the Grim Reaper and his two best friends.
The crowd enjoyed seeing the live burning, and the money raised went to a great cause.
