When This Artist Turns Off The Lights In His Studio, His Paintings Don’t Disappear

When the light goes out, your paintings on the wall go right along with it.

That could have a little something to do with why museums spend lots of money and even more time perfecting the lighting that shines over their exhibits. But what if those works could be seen in the dead of night?

This is a concept that artist Patrik Munchenberger explores in his paintings that completely transform in the dark and under UV light. Watch what happens to the paint in these pieces when each photosensitive work is given new life under those conditions.
