Azerbaijan based artist Rashad Alakbarov creates wonderful shadow art using everyday objects and reflecting their shadows to create wonderful cityscapes and portraits. My favorite of the lot is the piece above that beautifully incorporates color into the piece for a really striking landscape.

Rashad graduated from the Faculty of Decorative Arts at Azerbaijan State Academy of Fine Art in Baku in 2001. The use of shadows in his installation art has become the primary direction in the artist’s conceptual work but also dabbles in painting, sculpture, theater decorations, video art and architectural design.
