Live painting is a fascinating form of performance art.

The video above shows a short live painting performance by Beo Beyond, suitable for events with a short time frame. It could also be called a form of action painting with fluorescent colors.
This performance is flexible in size and motif. It can be realized both on the wall and horizontally on the floor. The fluorescent paint is odorless, non-toxic, and environmentally friendly.

Beo Beyond collaborated with the brands Absolut (vodka) and Vallformosa (sparkling wine) in a series of events where both the art and the brand provided a unique experience for visitors.
Most of these events have taken place at famous nightclubs in Barcelona and other cities in Spain. The guests liked to watch the paintings take shape and enjoyed the creative atmosphere.
Live painting is a work-in-progress, a performance in which creation, not the finished painting, is the real subject. At events it looks like a transforming decoration, a fascinating eye-catcher.


Blacklight paintings are a unique, eye-catching spectacle at night, a stunning decoration for events.

The blacklight paintings shown below are mainly assignments from event agencies; the large formats in particular are decoration for corporate events and nightclubs.
Beo Beyond’s freely created artistic work is shown here too with his exhibitions in art galleries. These are blacklight paintings with portraits, as well as the stencil art that was shown in the video above.

Beo Beyond expands traditional painting by using unconventional techniques and materials.

His work combines photography, digital image processing, and painting. Additionally, it involves illumination with a blacklight. This composition generates artworks that glow in the dark.
A lighting technology involving UV LEDs makes it possible to integrate the lighting in small images, similar to a lightbox. Thereby, it is unnecessary to install blacklight lamps in the room.


The light-up costumes shown below are handmade and one-of-a-kind, not produced in a series.

Beo Beyond created light-up costumes with fluorescent materials or LED for nearly two decades. Primarily he used them for his blacklight shows for events, video and photoshoots.
The designs do not use textiles, which is partly for hygienic reasons. They are handcrafted using PVC and other plastics, making them easy to clean. These pieces are unique and not for sale.

Blacklight Shibari: the art of bondage in a new light

Blacklight Shibari with fluorescent ropes is an unconventional live show, a modern interpretation of the traditional Shibari from Japan, the erotic art of bondage, in which the purely aesthetic form of bondage creates a temporary work of art.
Blacklight Shibari is a cooperation between Beo Beyond, the Shibari Artist Angela Nawa, and several Shibari-models. The fluorescent ropes that glow in the dark turn the art of bondage into a journey through time, a science-fiction scenario.

Blacklight shows for events and live marketing

Beo Beyond created these baroque-inspired costumes for a show called Living Dolls and developed the lighting system for the show. The costumes are made of fluorescent materials that glow under blacklight.
The choreography of the Living Dolls was created by the German performance group Project PQ and they manage the show worldwide from Frankfurt, Germany. Check out the following trailer of the show to see them in action:


The following photographs were taken with long exposure and moving light sources in a completely darkened studio. It is a photographic technique known as light painting.
Light painting has so far rarely been used in close-ups or portraits without a photoflash. Beo Beyond constructed its own lighting systems based on LED technology for these light painting portraits.
The images shown here are his freely created artistic work, produced in his studio with Creative Assistant Stacy Viard. In the commercial realm, he has lent his talents to several projects.

Beo Beyond is a German light artist who lives and works in Spain.

The focus of his work is luminous materials and artificial light sources. His work is very diverse and explores many mediums, including blacklight shows and live painting for events. The boundary between art and design is blurred.

Beo created most of his work in his studio in Barcelona. Now he lives and works in Gran Canaria, Spain.
