before street art, Madc’s creativity started out with degrees in graphic design. her connection with street art however began in her teens, this lead her into researching the sub culture of street art in her twenties and publishing two books on the subject. the first book, sticker city – paper graffiti art was published in 2007. in this book she explores the path and evolution of hand-painted and hand-crafted posters and stickers. her second book, street fronts – graffiti alphabets from around the world, she worked with 154 artists from around the world, to design the 26 letters of the latin alphabet with the limitation of designing within a single page of the book.
her work is bold and bright, full of movement and contrasts and simply stunning. i have featured her previously on HPMcQ here, here and here. but if you have a moment why don’t you pop down to the pure evil department store gallery before the 31st october as MadC is currently exhibiting a new solo show ‘character’.
