Electric Art

What would you do if you could use electricity to create art?  Well American artist Phil Hansen has done just that.  Watch as he uses sparks to create a picture of Nickola Tesla, one of the founding fathers of electricity.

Who would you draw if you could use this technique?  Do you have any other ideas that would be creative?

  1. I would draw the electric guy off of "The Amazing Spider man 2". I also think it would be cool if there was a different color. Like having a different color spark that would change the color of the paper so it could be different color!

  2. I think i would have to avoid making a person altogether, but opt for an animal instead. Imagine an electric thunderbird, now that would be truly awesome. It would be even cooler however, if you could choose how much of a fan the electricity makes or if its more like a bolt.

  3. I would use Tesla coils to create a form than take a picture.

  4. I wouldn't want to make art out of electricity, it would be weird and hard. I would love to make it out of stratch. Because, that's what arts about.

  5. This art is very interesting and looks very difficult. I would definitely draw people because the shading is so detailed in this type of art. Also if you could change the color of the burn that would be awesome.

  29. This is dope, i love that he uses electricity to do it considering that its a portrait of Nickola Tesla. He uses the dot technique to make it too, but at the same time... since its sparks they kinda leave strips and the color and texture of pencil. Its just cool.

  30. The detail in this is so fascinating. I would be afraid of the fire deciding it would want to fight back.

  31. He has taken art to a whole new level. Using electricity to make a face is just crazy. It is so fine that he could make a face out of the burning of the sparks
