French body painter and graffiti artist RéElBenjam1 uses the art of calligraphy to create a contemporary extension of his emotions and personal experiences and transform them into shapes, colors, and signs. His inspiration comes from Eastern calligraphy and tribal orientation graffiti. The shapes and icons RéElBenjam1 paints on bodies is his unique way of writing. His creativity goes beyond traditional body paint as he also uses fluorescent paint to add an eye-catching and vibrant look to his body art.
