Light Graffiti Artist

Welsh artist Michael Bosanko has traded in his paintbrush for lights and a digital camera. Using only these tools, the 39-year-old artist creates light graffiti using five colored flashlights and by leaving his digital camera set for long exposure.

To create these light effects Bosanko covers an ordinary household flashlight with acetate paper which allows him to bring different shades of the color spectrum into his art. As an abstract artist, Bosanko tries to incorporate a sense of the surreal into all of his photographs.

Here's what Bosanko has to say about his work:

"I use my torches like an artist would use a paint brush. I employ an exposure that lasts from ten seconds to one hour and then try to let my art manage to create what I had imagined. What I feel I am trying to convey is a sense of an aesthetically pleasing shape that clearly does not belong in that particular place or area."
