Everyone has seen art with normal lighting, but have you ever seen art in negative light? Treat your visual senses to Lumière Noir: A Higher Frequency, a free art show where guests will gaze upon art and photography based on black light. Using a special blend of paints mixed by hand, the artists create lush, vivid body art using costumes and the models’ bodies as the canvas. This special paint blend appears as normal paint in regular light, but under black light, the paint on the models illuminate to highlight the costumes and the natural beauty & shape of the models’ bodies. Once photographed, the photo goes onto a special brushed aluminum sheet that boldly highlights the colors of the art.

A preview night of Lumière Noir took place last week on Wednesday night at Proof Bar in Downtown Santa Ana. At the preview, guests could view a handful of art work all around the bar, while gazing at the live body painting occurring at the back of the room. As the body painting occurred, guests could approach and take pictures as the model posed while getting painted on. At the end, all guests could take pictures of this living ultraviolet art.

The main event will occur in the downstairs area of Proof Bar this Saturday night, as part of the monthly First Saturday Art Walk. This main event will feature much more art work hung on the walls around the room, live video of the body painting, recorded video from previous shows, and more almost-nude models getting painted on, culminating in a spectacular show of mobile, sentient ultraviolet art at the end of the night. For a free event, what have you got to lose? Keep in mind that no one under 21 may enter.
