Portrait of Light Artist Sola. Birmingham's sun sets, but one man is still making light of his home city Wheras Banksy comes out to create something to find the next morning, blink and you'll miss Sola's graffiti, because it is only made using a camera and light. Street artist Sola, real name Peter Medlicott, 38, has been practicing Lightbombing (a take on the graffiti term 'bombing' where the artist would create a piece very quickly to avoid being spotted) for five years. His work in Birmingham includes an urban rainbow created in Paradise Circus and a public art commission for Birmingham New Street Train Station in which he created a 24 foot light feature in Hill Street. Peter first discovered the technique almost by accident. Sola has also practiced lightbombing in Dubai as well as rural areas including the Cotswolds and Glastonbury.
