PABLO PICASSO’S ‘LIGHT DRAWINGS’

Although he is well known for his paintings and sculptures, Pablo Picasso is less renowned for a series of photographic work that came to be known as “light drawings”. It began back in 1949, when he was shown a photograph of ice skaters with tiny lights affixed to their skates and was inspired to create beautiful pictures by “drawing” them in the air with a small flashlight in a dark room. Light art has since evolved into more complex forms, including performance pieces, but Picasso is considered a forerunner of the genre.
