Light and Shadow Paintings

Light and Shadow Paintings

Beautiful and creative shadow art by Rashad Alakbarov from Azerbaijan.

Instead of using regular paintbrushes, talented artist paints on walls by shining light through carefully arranged objects.

Created shadows form images of people, cities, and landscapes.

    I totally agree with The Thinking Insomniac! This is amazing, it takes skill to envision an image using objects, light and perspective.

    If this is real, it is truly amazing. And I am not questioning it’s authenticity, but… on the last one, what hanging object exactly is creating the large blue water area on the wall? Like I said, it’s incredible and I would never be able to comprehend how this is done. That last one just doesn’t quite look right to me though. Hope that doesn’t ruin anyone’s impression of the brilliance here.
