Awesome Life of Light Graffiti Skeletons

We’ve seen light graffiti before, but none as lively as these skeletons by Los Angeles-based Darius Twin (aka Darren Pearson). Twin began light painting since 2008, after seeing an image from Gjon Mili that captured Pablo Picasso creating a light drawing called Picasso Draws A Centaur.

Often times, people assume that Twin’s images are photoshopped, but they are not. He pioneered the light painting technique of spinning a glass prism in front of the camera while shinning light into the lens to create rainbow prismatic circles.

“Every movement is tracked precisely, and getting any recognizeable form is difficult,” says Twin. “At the end of a blindly illustrated 5 – 7 minute exposure, you either have an image that works, or a luminous tangle with the disjointed parts of what you’ve intended.”
