Johnny Christmas Painting with Light

Now working primarily as a photographer and printmaker, Johnny Christmas initially exhibited a set of Braille drawings with My Life in Art gallery in 2007. Most recently he has been experimenting on a series of photographs made by attaching a combination of colored torches to a rotating turntable and shooting from above on a very slow exposure.This produces a strong painterly effect. After printing in a large format, the images are Diasec mounted to ensure brilliant color and a high gloss finish. Born in 1977, Johnny Christmas lives and works in London.

In the same spirit as Damien Hirst, I really like his world map made out of pills.
