/SHADOW & LIGHT ART: RASHAD ALAKBAROV – FLY TO BAKU

Rashsad Alakbarov of Azerbaijan has created an art exhibition titled “Fly To Baku” which uses light and shadow to create images on a rear surface.

Through playing with shadow, light and colour Alakbarov is able to create even fully coloured images, not only silhouettes. We’ve seen SHADOW ART here before, like in /SHADOW ART: SILHOUETTES FROM JUNK, but Alakbarov adds a new level to it by adding colour and transparency to his installations. Awesome.

Unfortunately we were unable to find an official website or page for the artist, so if any of you know of one, please don’t hesitate to let us know!

Props to the artist, look out for him: RASHAD ALAKBAROV.
