Cloaked in Red and Blue Light, St. Peter’s Basilica Morphs into a Cyberpunk Dreamscape

In the aptly named Red Lights: Vatican series, Angers, France-based photographer Aishy transforms St. Peter’s Basilica into a strange, illuminated space that more closely resembles a sci-fi universe than stately church. The altered perspective, which Aishy achieved with Adobe Lightroom, casts red and blue hues on the iconic Renaissance architecture to unveil an alternative environment that hovers between past and future: inscriptions mimic a digital display, ornate flourishes appear backlit, and an artificial glow in vibrant, saturated tones blankets the lavish structured typically associated with marble, gilded details, and other ornamental features. To view the entire Red Lights: Vatican series, find the photographer on Behance and Instagram. (via Jeroen Apers)

I really like old doors and windows. There is some mystery in them. The watercolor is painted on Saunders Waterford paper. The painting will fit into any interior. You just need to choose a solid frame in the color of your walls. The picture will delight you for many years.
