Our choice for artist of the month this April is: Chris Levine (best known for his work in the field of light art).
What is light art?
In summary, light art is a form of applied arts where light is the main medium. It is a form where either a sculpture can produce light, or light is used to create one through the manipulation of itself, colours, and shadows.
We chose him because he is considered to be a pioneer in his field, someone who continues to innovate and provides visually interesting and creative works.
Some of his most well-known works include: a portrait of Queen Elizabeth ll ‘Lightness of Being (Blue)’, one of The Dalai Lama meditating ‘Compassion’, and one of Kate Moss ‘She’s Light’ among others.
