Kumi Yamashita’s Unbelievably Amazing Shadow People

For some reason, when I saw these images for the first time a few hours ago, the first thought that popped into my head was Ron Burgundy saying “by the beard of Zeus!”  These pieces below are just outstanding to me.  Kumi Yamashita has created many of these “shadow works” before – she is absolutely brilliant at painting with darkness.

Check these out – you have to see her work.  You have to see it.  You also have to check out Kumi’s portfolio.  Kumi, you blew me away.

That one is just freaky!  I love it!

A commenter left an image on the original poster’s site (thanks, My Modern Met!) with another very striking image, created by Kumi, too:

Thanks, Nicola Andrews, for bringing this to my attention!!!
