Bert Hickman’s Painting with Lightning Bolts: Lichtenberg Figures

Here is something you do not see every day; Captured Lightning. 

Captured Lightning is an incredible visual art form – and the creator of this mesmerizing form of art is none other than Artist Bert Hickman. Utilizing his creative expertise, he is able to take a multimillion-volt electron beam and insert it into acrylic. Showcasing these powerful 5 million electron volt bolts of energy within the plastic produces lightning bolt patterns like no other. Captured Lightning breathes new life into acrylic pieces and mesmerizes viewers with its raw power as you look upon them.

Hickman’s painting with lightning bolts is also called Lichtenberg figures.
