Oil Paintings That Mimic Long-Exposure Night Photos

Alexandra Pacula paints beautiful oil paintings of cities at night that look like blurry, long-exposure photographs.

Pacula tells us,

My work investigates a world of visual intoxication; it captures moments of enchantment, which are associated with urban nightlife. I am fascinated by the ambiance of the city at night and its seductive qualities. The breathtaking turbulence of speeding vehicles and hasty pedestrians evoke feelings of wonder and disorientation. The vibrant lights become a magical landscape with enticing opportunities and promises of fulfillment.
