An artist sees magic in ordinary things and creates real shadow theatre

Belgian filmmaker knows with certainty that all great things start accidentally. Once, while he was working on a new script, he suddenly noticed how the shadow of a teacup on his desk looked like a little elephant. He completed the image with a few lines. The reactions were so positive that he challenged himself to make one of these every day. And he hasn’t stopped since.

We felt like we visited a real theater of shadows when we saw Vincent Bal’s works of art. We’d love for you to dive into this bewildering experience together with us.
