Here, there, everywhere...

Tigtab is an artist who finds inspiration in melancholy. She says she finds "beauty in decay – those abandoned and forgotten places all around us. By bringing light into the darkness of each space, it fills that space for a moment in time, and highlights both their beauty and impermanence."

Tigtab is an artist from Melbourne, Australia and keeps her identity a close guarded secret.  She works under the cover of darkness and works with stencils.

The stencils are placed on light boxes lined with silver foil. The intricate designs are revealed after a burst from a camera flash lights up the inside of the box very briefly.

The results are marvelous and none of this work is computer generated.
