Artist Turns Shadows Of Objects Into Fun And Fascinating Illustrations


Vincent Bal, a Belgian artist, makes art with shadows, but his art ain’t dark.

The Belgian, artist and filmmaker, has always been in love with drawing, but last year he found a unique way to use his passion. He said, “While I was working on a new script last April, I noticed how my teacup made a nice shadow on a piece of paper.”

“I drew some lines on it and suddenly the shadow was an elephant. I took a pic with my phone and posted it on Facebook. Before I knew it, this pic was shared and liked as never before. I was surprised how much people liked it.”

“Since that day I’ve been posting a doodle a day. Sometimes with shadows, sometimes with objects, always with a silly punchline. It’s great. I love how quick it is. I have an idea, make it, and find an audience, all in less than half an hour. I love the freedom. There are no restrictions. I can just watch a shadow and see if I recognize a shape,” he added.
