Tip of the Week: Creating Conceptual Art


Shadows can manifest themselves in ways that a human figure may not. In that sense, employing shadows can be useful in creating stronger messages. Think of various concepts that you can execute with the use of graphical shadows. For instance, if there is a wall with a lot of spray painted words, adding a shadow will offset the writing on the wall. You could also position yourself in interesting ways, perhaps recreating the shadow puppets we were so fond of making during our childhood.
