Cédric Arnold

Born in 1976 - Thailand


Cédric Arnold was born in the United Kingdom in 1976. He lives and works in Bangkok, Thailand.

For centuries, Thaï men have been covering themselves with tattoos to provide protective virtues, known as Yantra. This tradition has continued through the ages, from generation to generation of monks and laymen. The body is turned into a canvas where is drawn a temple of prayer, an armor that combine Buddhist text and mythological creatures.

Cédric Arnold’s work is original by his unique vision and by a new and bold subject. The artist reinterprets analog photography and Polaroid media with an old optical chamber and chemicals. Thus he shows us that his work is not only documentary but also an authentic form of art. At a time when tattoos are a fashion phenomenon, Cédric Arnold made the choice to show tattoos from a new perspective: spirituality.
