Brilliant Light Paintings by Darius Twin
Los Angeles artist Darren Pearson, aka Darius Twin is a master of light painting - a method of rendering objects using LED lights and long-exposure photography. Covering all manner of natural motifs, from fossils and animals, to human skeletons rendered with surprising intricacy considering the artist can only "see" the finished piece in his head and take mental notes of the parts he's already drawn.
"In terms of technique, there are many different ways to light-paint including surface painting, orbs, steel-wool spinning, light-stencils, models, etc. I personally specialize in illustration, and I’ve created my own LED tool to help with precision light-drawing. I call it Night-Writer and it does exactly what you’d expect a Night-Writer to do – it’s an LED marker with different color-tips you plug-in for various lighting effects. I choose locations based on places I find interesting: national parks, sites of historical importance, abandoned buildings, and spots w unique geological features. Google maps satellite view is a wonderful resource!”
