Michael Bosanko’s light graffiti
First covered by the Guardian who ran this story back in 2009.
Invasion: ‘What I feel I am trying to convey is a sense of an aesthetically pleasing shape that clearly does not belong in that particular place or area,’ says Bosanko. Based in Cardiff, most of the light art is drawn either in the empty urban night spaces of cities like Newport and the artist’s home town, or in the more desolate landscapes of the Breacon Beacons.
He spent the past five years developing his technique. These images were taken with a long exposure on a digital Canon camera. Thirty-nine-year-old photographic artist Michael Bosanko has made these pictures, which have not been Photoshopped, using colored torches at night in the same way that an artist uses a paintbrush. His digital camera stays on a long exposure, ranging from 10 seconds to one hour to create the images against the backdrop of Cardiff, Newport and the Brecon Beacons in south Wales
