About

Frodo Álvarez es originario de Oviedo (Asturias, España) y full-time lightpainter en la actualidad. En 2009 descubre el light painting y automáticamente se enciende en él la chispa de su vocación artística, uniendo su afición por la fotografía y aliviando una vieja espina que el graffiti le había dejado clavada. Sin más lightpainters a su alrededor por aquel entonces, pronto el light painting se convierte en una afición, un hobby, una pasión, y funda con un grupo de amigos el colectivo Children Of Darklight (abreviado bajo las siglas DKL), para sacar adelante cada proyecto Light Painting  que se le pasa por la cabeza. Children Of Darklight en la actualidad lo forman todos aquellos que creen en  lo que hacemos y colaboran con nosotros, todos somos hermanos de luces en la oscuridad. Desde lightpainters de primera línea como Edu Cajigal, DaveAstur, Sfhir, Riders of Light, Luis Medina, Mario Le2, etc… con quienes Frodo trabaja de manera habitual, a realizadores de vídeo, modelos, estilistas, maquilladores, colegas LPers de todo el mundo… todos somos Children Of Darklight.

Tras años experimentando con el light painting, sus diferentes subestilos, sus innumerables posibilidades, sus herramientas, sus secretos… Frodo ha aprendido a controlar la luz, siendo no sólo un veterano de la técnica a nivel nacional, sino que se ha ganado también a pulso el ser un referente a nivel mundial.

Behind the name of Children Of Darklight, we can find artist Frodo Álvarez DKL  from Oviedo (Spain). In 2009 he started to experiment Light Painting in a pioneer way in Spain and soon it became his passion and later his way of life. Light Painting is an artform based on long exposures in dark locations, where the frame become the canvas, and lights are the tools for the artist to paint.

In 2012 Frodo became the Spanish representative member for the Light Painting World Alliance (LPWA), a group of worldwide lightpainters trying to promote light painting as an art form itself apart from photography. He has participated in most of the LPWA World Exhibitions in some of the most important cities of the world. He was also invited several times as a guest artist in his city’s White Night Event, making interactive light painting exhibitions, and he is nowadays the director of the first and most important lightpainting convention in the world, the INTERNATIONAL LIGHTART CONGRESS CITY OF OVIEDO.

Related to his art, Frodo is known for not being afraid of anything; he always keeps innovating and he has no boundaries to create.Children of Darklight is still developing continuous experiments, creating light painting works in many different ways and styles, always working on new challenges, interesting projects and collaboration; but now also making it professional, adapting this art to the events where he is invited (photobooths, live shows, exhibitions, professional shootings, video lightpainting focused on advertising, light painting stop motion animations…) or any other professional work related to light painting.

Frodo has been awarded with the 1st prize at the most important light painting contest in the world in 2016, the International Light Painting Award. Now, Frodo is a well recognized lightpainter and a reference to many others, not only in Spain, but in the whole world.
