Light painting artist Darren Pearson, a.k.a. Darius Twin, has been light painting since 2008. He first discovered light painting after seeing an image from Gjon Mili that captured Pablo Picasso creating a light drawing called “Picasso Draws A Centar”. The influence of Picasso’s light drawing can be seen in Darren’s work as many of his light painting images are created using a similar line light drawing technique. Darren lives in Los Angeles and says one of the most difficult parts of creating his light drawings is “finding a cool spot without ambient light or sketchy night-people. In Los Angeles, that’s a tall order!” He has heard the dreaded word “Photoshop” roughly 486 times when listening to people talk about his work, but is surprisingly not sick of explaining it yet. Darren pioneered the light painting technique of spinning a glass prism in front of the camera while shinning light into the lens to create rainbow prismatic circles.
