Painted Shadows in an Abandoned Psychiatric Hospital. 1000 Shadows is an ongoing project by Brazilian street artist Herbert Baglione that features eerie shadows taking residence in abandoned buildings.

Painted Shadows in an Abandoned Psychiatric Hospital

The painted silhouettes have emerged on the walls, floors, and ceilings of empty rooms and outside deserted homes in So Paulo and Paris. Perhaps the most interesting locale that Baglione has chosen for the elongated shadows, though, is an abandoned psychiatric hospital in Parma, Italy. As if the vacant, crumbling edifice with a history of housing mental illness didn't provide enough emotional context, Baglione adds his ghostly figures to the dilapidated decor.

Nazir Tanbouli Contemporary Art - Drawing, Mural and Installation. How to be a Guerilla Artist. June 8th, 2010 How to be a Guerilla Artist (originally published in 2006) Guerilla art is a fun and insidious way of sharing your vision with the world.

How to be a Guerilla Artist

It is a method of art making which entails leaving anonymous art pieces in public places. It can be done for a variety of reasons, to make a statement, to share your ideas, to send out good karma, or just for fun. My current fascination with it stems from a belief in the importance of making art without attachment to the outcome. My first experience with being a guerilla artist was in my first year of art school in a class taught by conceptual artist Shirley Yanover. Now I am not necessarily advocating that you do anything illegal or potentially life threatening. Possible Formats 1. Potential Ideas for subject matter. AOC. Street Art News.
