Elvis Presley Silhouette
Kind of addicted to these crumpled banknote silhouettes. This one, created recently, is a silhouette profile of Elvis created from a crumpled 50€ banknote.
I have always been a big fan of Elvis from as far back as I can remember. I have lost count of the number of drawings and paintings I have done of the King of Rock n Roll.
This depiction is unique. I could never have foreseen me doing this years ago. Silhouette images have been a passion of mine for some time now. I enjoy the silhouette cutting jobs that come my way, but this new angle is also exciting.
I am sure that other ideas for recording silhouette profiles will come along soon. Handshadowgraphy is another interesting representation of projecting silhouettes using hands and a single light source. It is an amazing form of art which brings movement into the art form too.
I can thoroughly recommend New York artist, Kumi Yamashita. She does amazing work with light and shadow, as well as other art forms. You can see her work by clicking HERE
