Picasso: The Illuminating Luminary

Not only was Pablo Picasso a world renowned painter, sculpter and playa pimp (oh you aint heard? Well you must not have the Bio Channel) but he was also the forefather of light graffiti.  He’s been doing the LED thing since 1949, so basically without him there’s no GRL.  

“LIFE photographer Gjon Mili visited Picasso in 1949. Mili showed the artist some of his photographs of ice skaters with tiny lights affixed to their skates jumping in the dark—and Picasso’s mind began to race. The series of photographs that follows—Picasso’s light drawings—were made with a small flashlight in a dark room; the images vanished almost as soon as they were created.”
