Light Art, a brighter look at life.

Light art takes what you think you know about graffiti and turns it on its head. This ephemeral approach to art and expression uses the movement of light to create incredible images and is created on the streets, in nature, and in studios by artists whose creative impulses transcend traditional media.

Light art is art that is created partially or entirely with one or more light sources. The art usually creates a specific image. In some cases, however, the light is used to create an overall artistic effect rather than to depict something else.

Another type of art using light is light painting. This is a photography technique that uses long exposure to create and capture streams of light on film. Once the artist has done this, he can create as many prints of the resulting image as he wants, preserving the creation. It thus is a permanent form of light art.

Here are just a few shots of the amazing art form:
