MadC is based in Germany but travelled the globe her whole life, leaving her mark wherever she went. From the very beginning she was in love with concept walls and constantly pushed her technique.
Her most famous wall project yet is the so called 700Wall – a wall nearly 700 square meter big that she painted all by herself throughout the year 2010. The wall was a mile stone in graffiti history, not just for its size, but also for the idea behind it. On this wall, MadC told the story of a graffiti writer in various scenes and painted her name more than 100 times in diverse interpretations.
MadC’s major interest lies in letters and fonts. For her canvases she is transferring her philosophy of connecting single parts to one piece – background, foreground, lines and shapes. To create those works, MadC is using spray paint, transparent spray paint, ink, watercolour, acrylic paint and acrylic markers. She is painting on canvas as well as carton from spray paint boxes.
MadC‘s passion for fonts and street art is also visible in her published work. In 2011, her second book „Street Fonts“ was published by Thames & Hudson and various other publishers worldwide. The book shows over 150 alphabets by graffiti and street artists form around the globe. Since 1996, when MadC painted her first wall, she was invited and has visited more than 35 countries including Sweden, France, USA, United Kingdom, Lebanon, South Africa, Bolivia, Hawaii, Colombia, Mexico, Spain, Norway, Poland, Russia and many more.
