“Calligraphy in the Air” by Kalaam.

“Fraternité – Brotherhood,” Arabic calligraphy. Jodpur – India (2012).
In a stunning series of images that blend photography, calligraphy, and performance art, Nantes-based artist Julien Breton (aka Kaalam) uses light and dance to “paint” beautiful and fleeting characters into the air.
Inspired by a combination of Latin and Arabic writing styles, each piece is captured on long-exposure film while the artist creates his inscriptions using colored lamps and careful, intention-filled movements


“Dead’s Place,” Abstract calligraphy, New York – USA (2012).
As a living, artistic response to the environment, the designs are matched in compositional harmony to the surrounding backdrop, be it an underpass in New York, an abandoned building in France, or a magnificent hall in India.
Each performance lasts several minutes and is then transformed into a single frame, transcending the boundaries of time and our perception of light.
