Artist Controls Rising Smoke to Create Ghost-like Paintings

Imagine being able to control the flow of smoke so well that you can create beautiful art work out of it?

Rob Tarbell has mastered this ability.

He tapes his paper canvas on the ceiling of his art studio, and burns everyday objects under the canvas (obviously using many safety techniques).

The next part is unbelievable.

Rob Tarbell is able to control the rising smoke, and create amazing images on the canvas.

He relates controlling the smoke to trainers controlling wild animals at a circus. This is why all of his smoke paintings consist of circus performances in which the trainer is leading the animal.

On Rob Tarbell’s website, you can see all of his different style art works. My favorite is obviously his smoke paintings, and I highly recommend you take a look at all of them.  You can also find this quote on his website in which he explains in detail the reason for using circus acts in his smoke paintings:

 “The trainer must recognize and respect the innate nature of an animal when trying to modify its behavior to achieve a desired outcome: e.g. training a bear to dance or training a horse to walk upright. The same is true in working with smoke. The inherent properties of smoke must be respected, then permitted to – and yet discouraged from – acting naturally.”

Who would have thought that this was even possible?

This should open up the minds of everyone and have them realize that almost anything is possible if you put enough work into it.
