The term ‘painting with light‘ can encompass many different types of art, but this is a new twist on the idea of making art with light and shadow.

Rashad Alakbarov, who hails form Azerbaijan, is no stranger to the art scene having shown at the Venice Biennale in 07. A shadow master extraordinaire, Alakbarov uses various translucent items, such as empty water bottles and light bulbs, as well as scrap and random things like miniature aeroplanes and toys, in his creation process. Once they are all suspended and lit up, the results are astounding.
