Fantastic Kaleidosopic Light Paintings Created in Camera

Neon whirls and electric sparks dominate these vibrant works of art inspired by Dr. Seuss, M.C. Escher, comic books and countless geometric designs and patterns.

The world is your canvas. Anything you can imagine can be painted a million different ways.”
