Picture Blog #25 : Shadow Art - Darkness At Its Best

by Fred Eerdekens

I covered Light Painting in an earlier post in this Picture Blog series. Let's try Shadow Painting this time.

Very often, shadows are pieces of unintentional artwork that went unnoticed around us. In the case of shadow art, it is an art form where shadows are deliberately cast by a 3D sculpture, creating an artistic image.

Some call it the art of silhouette. I prefer to describe it as 'darkness at its best'.

When the 3D sculpture is presented before you, you cannot imagine how its shadow is going to show up on the wall. It is only when the light comes on, you see an amazing imagination of the artist being 'drawn' on the wall.

Here are some great masterpieces:
