Body Language © Arthur Cadre | Image source internet
Arthur Cadre aka “lil crabe” was born in France in 1991. This multi-talented artist is a contortionist, dancer, photographer, performer, and an architect. He obtained a master degree in architecture at the University of Montreal.
He started his dance practice at the age of 9. A few years later, at the age of 13, his YoutTube video became viral and was seen more than 10 million times. Arthur played NFL halftime show in Atlanta in front of 70,000 people. He also performed in the show in ”La Perle”, created by in Franco Dragone, in 2017 in Dubai.
In his series titled ‘Wonderland creatures‘, Arthur Cadre photographed and performed mesmerizing body positions in natural landscapes. The images, which were shot in locations around the world, see Cadre twisting his body and transforming himself into ethereal forms that complement the backdrop. In addition to dance, he practices disciplines such as acrobatics, parkour and contortion. In ‘Colourful Encounter’, the photographer has taken numerous shots of a yogi couple melt together into geometric shapes. All photos were shot using color projections to give the series a more surreal touch. Furthermore, each color represents a certain mood and performance. Whether alone or together, the naked bodies seem like human sculptures, which are fused into geometric shapes. Often, the symmetrical images are the creations of two bodies, intertwined and harnessing every curve and crevice in order to form shapes and typography. The photographer Arthur Cadre’s subjects in Colorful Encounters are no average artists, either—they’re yogis, a couple in fact, who were selected by Cadre to realize his vision of melding geometry and the natural contours of the human body. Cadre lights his subjects with the warm glow of fiery pinks and fading purples to contrast and highlight the lines of his human geometries.
