The CZECH THE LIGHT Project Brought Light Painting to Berlin
Kutná Hora, Brno, Hradec Králové, Olomouc, Plzeň, Ostrava, Český Krumlov. All these cities have recently seen light painting – a relatively new, but popular form of art. And on 13th September we finally visited another country as well!
Supported by the CzechTourism agency and in cooperation with the SIGNAL Light Festival, a light painting workshop was held in Berlin. This greatly creative workshop was led by the Czech visual artist-photographer Ondřej Chmel, whose aerosol installations and light paintings are known worldwide. The workshop participants learning how to paint with special “light brushes” to leave traces similar to those of a painter’s brush on photographs enjoyed Ondřej’s qualified and kind supervision.
 
The event took place in the Berlin Plateau Gallery and was attended by 15 participants (including local artists) who listened to Ondřej’s tips and created their works from 9 p.m. until 1.30 a.m. Thank you to all the participants for the great atmosphere, we hope to see you again soon!
 
What is the CZECH THE LIGHT project about to offer next? On Saturday 20th September we are going to make light paintings in the streets of Prague. And on 16th – 19th October, the Czech capital will be ruled by the SIGNAL Light Festival. Make sure you don’t miss it out!
