The Amazing Shadow Paintings of Rashad Alakbarov

Using various everyday objects and back light, Azerbaijani artist Rashad Alakbarov creates mind-blowing shadow paintings.

It always amazes me what some people can achieve by using the simplest materials and their imagination. Rashad Alakbarov is definitely one of these incredible individuals; using common items like empty plastic bottles, metal pipes or simple pieces of plastic and back light, he creates amazing works of art. Either by hanging these items from the ceiling, or carefully positioning them on a table, Alakbarov manages to produce incredible shadow paintings.Seeing as you only need some junk and a couple of lamps for the back light, it’s theoretically possible to create shadow paintings like those of Rashad Alakbarov in the comfort of your own home, but do you really have the patience to do it? I know sure don’t.

"Bonsai" means "tree in a tray", so it is a mature plant,
which through successive pruning the roots and
crown, remains small enough to live in a vase.
The maintenance of bonsai is close to the deal
because the plants that live in common vessels.
With a little more hobbyist attention and some
half an hour of your time daily, it is possible
for you to start creating a small collection of
Bonshai sculptures of metal and real plants
for your self. Sun, humidity, moisture, and
good environment is necessary.
