The world has changed a lot since Pablo Picasso made his first experiments of painting with light, using a simple torch. Today, the artist collective LICHTFAKTOR rooted in urban street art, constantly keeps experimenting with light painting photos, pushing the envelope towards contemporary means of expression. A variety of light writing that we developed over the years enables us to work space like a painter works on a canvas.
We expand our craft in response to new surroundings, new sceneries. To us, a given location is more than just a simple background for our light paintings. It is an integral part of our work. This makes lightwriting an urban environmental art.
