Massimo Uberti Works of Light
Rizon Parein started in the early nineties as a graffiti artist with a strong passion for 3D letter styles.
After quitting school at the age of 17, he started working in graphic design to make a living; the ‘School of Hard Knocks’. He specialised in designing flyers for Belgian club nights, which gave him the chance to experiment with classic graphic design techniques as well as 3D design. His work for Kozzmozz and Fill Collins Club were amongst the most popular flyers of that time.

Levi van Veluw. Light Series.
Light I, 2009. 120 x 100 cm & 60 x 50 cm.
Light II, 2009.
Light III, 2009.
For the Light series, Van Veluw covered his head with strips of light-generating foil. Photographed in total darkness, the highly radiant bright blue light produced by this material, allows it to stand out like an autonomous object. The features of Van Veluw’s face have disappeared, only its shape remains discernible through the mass of light strips.
Light becomes form and exists independently from its base, the original subject. This ‘invisibility’ of the human subject informs the formal qualities of these images.
