Mind-Blowing Light Painting Mosaics By Brian Matthew Hart

If you're one of those who have tried and succeeded in taking beautiful light paintings, wait until you see the amazing work of a master light painter who made mosaics out of his photos! Learn more about it after the jump!

A quick look at Brian Matthew Hart’s portfolio of light paintings will tell you that he has mastered the art of this long exposure technique, but his latest work will definitely make your jaw drop with wonder. For his newest project, Hart has put together some individual light paintings to create mind-blowing mosaics that are colossal both in size and effect. Prepare to be amazed and take a look at some of them below:

The impressive mosaic of the largest hand, perhaps the highlight of this recent collection, is actually made from 324 individual photos and a part of an unfinished diptych. Each section measures 4 in x 6 in, with a total dimension of 72 in x 108 in (6 ft x 9 ft). How is he able to come up with such jaw-dropping light painting works, perhaps I will never know or understand, but I sure do hope he puts these works on exhibit somewhere for all the world to marvel at!

So, what do you think of Hart’s hardcore light painting project? Do you think you can pull off something as spectacular with film? Share your insights with us below!
