Arabic light calligraphy by Julien Breton

Julien Breton, aka Kalaam is a french guy from Nantes. In 2001 he started studying arabic calligraphy to achive, melting it with ‘tags’ lettering, a new calligraphy that was a perfect mixture between east and west cultures. But he wanted more, and he did all this making the best light graffitis I’ve ever seen so far, both for composition and photography. 

Julien Breton, conosciuto anche come Kalaam, è un ragazzo francese di Nantes. Nel 2001 ha iniziato a studiare la scrittura araba per arrivare, attraverso anche l’influenza dei graffiti, ad un lettering che fosse una perfetta commistione tra oriente ed occidente. Non contento di ciò ha voluto esprimere tutto questo con i light graffiti più belli che abbia visto finora, sia per la composizione del lettering che per la fotografia.
