The Italian artist Cristoforo Scorpiniti showcases his beautiful glow-in-the-dark paintings on his 'Crisco Art' Instagram account.

The glow-in-the-dark paintings were created with paint made in part with phosphorescent tints -- a material that has a much slower rate of radiation emission than the chemical used for many other glow-in-the-dark products such as glow sticks. Inspired by the natural world, the artist manages to capture beautiful scenes and luminescent night skies that have a realistic quality due to his use of unique paints. The beautifully compelling luminescent paintings evoke a sense of wonder and awe.

These glow-in-the-dark paintings are by no means complex, but manage to capture the imagination in ways that many artists cannot achieve.
