Light Art

Wide-eyed amazement and slack-jawed disbelief is the most common response to participating in the creation of one of The Light Painter’s images.

The Light Painters use a form of long exposure photography similar to making trails with sparklers on Bonfire Night. However here guests get to play with an array of homemade light ‘brushes’, torches, lightsabers and wands to create dazzling portraits, abstract masterpieces and amazing animations in a matter of seconds; there are literally infinite possibilities for creativity in this magical process. Individuals and groups can pose for a portrait whilst other guests go wild with lights around them or you can have the Light Artists create specific scenes or images around you on request. Perhaps you would like to shoot lasers from your hands, be dressed in a neon mermaid outfit surrounded by fish The Light Painters can draw whatever you can imagine into your scene.

Simple animations can be created by making sequences of light paintings. You can create a garden of dancing flowers or have words or love hearts rise from the ground and spin around you; and if that all sounds a bit too pink and fluffy then maybe you’d like to shoot flames from your hands?

Here’s what The Light Painters – Light Art’s clients said:

Our friends suggested we go along to a light painting workshop by Andy O’ Rourke (not Andy Rourke former bassist with the Smiths). It was one of our highlights as we created pictures using a host of handheld lights and torches. I won’t go into how it’s done as I don’t understand it but hasten to say it was great fun and the results were astonishing.

The magical concept of drawing with light becomes a wonderful reality with Andy O’Rourke’s light drawing sessions. Working in the dark presents an opportunity for freedom of expression whether you’re five or fifty five and the captured moments are both beautiful, cool and compelling.

For some years now I have employed Andy of Malarky Arts to do his light painting at Green Man festival and events at Ashton Court Estate because it is innovative and unique which adds that extra qudos to the events plus the clients love the images. I’d also add we love the way Andy is ‘discreet’ in how he operates so that he never interferes with the parties, he’s always early, fully prepared and provides what we or our client needs without fuss. He is a pleasure to work with.
