An Artist Sees Magic in Ordinary Things and Creates Real Shadow Theatre

2 years ago

A Belgian filmmaker and artist knows with certainty that all great things start accidentally. Once, while he was working on a new script, he suddenly noticed how the shadow of a teacup on his desk looked like a little elephant. He completed the image with a few lines, took a picture, and shared it on Instagram and YouTube. The reactions were so positive that he challenged himself to make one of these “shadow doodles” every day. And he hasn’t stopped since.

Here at Bright Side, we felt like we visited a real theater of shadows when we saw Vincent Bal’s works of art. We’d love for you to dive into this bewildering experience together with us.
