Both a philanthropist and a visionary, Fabrice Wittner created this extraordinary project and work of artistic genius in the wake of a 6.3 scale earthquake in Canterbury, New Zealand. After watching his community come together to rebuild houses, clean the streets and offer a hand wherever needed, he wanted to do his part in the best way he knew how: by creating a touching and reflective piece of artwork that would further unite those affected.

The project, appropriately entitled ‘Enlightened,’ was an elaborate process which began by taking portraits of people in the streets, turning them into real life stencils and then replacing them in the frame using the right light. While it was a process with its challenges, the end result by Fabrice Wittner is a visual wonder that is truly heartwarming.
