Paintless Scenic Landscapes Projected Out of Light and Shadow

shadow-art-closeup-two

If you happen to be seeing a colorful hazy landscape on the blank wall above, you’re not actually dreaming, but rather looking at the imaginative projection art of Rashad Alakbarov. Based out of Azerbaijan, Rashad experiments with different materials and backgrounds to turn 3-D objects into creative 2-D displays of amazing city scenes, landscapes, portraits and more. The installation featured above was also on display at the Fly to Baku Contemporary Art Exhibition at the De Pury Gallery in London last year. Each artwork has a playful quality and a unique set of ingredients that can include anything from custom shape designs like the plastic versions of paper airplanes flying above or simply drawing from everyday things and other urban junk.

Check out some of the scenes below which appear as inception-like paintings but are really projections of light and shadows carefully extracted from the objects in front.
