Current solo show
13.05.2019 – 18.05.2019
Kolly Gallery is proud to present MadC’s new body of work in Zurich from May 13 to May 18, 2019. Claudia Walde alias MadC is among the most successful female street artists. She dedicates this paintings to the time of spring therefore she entitled the series Cherry Blossom.
The development of the cherry blossom and the change, from winter to spring, is very inspiring for MadC. The colours of the flowers combined with the blue sky, green leaves as well as the white clouds are intoxicating, powerful and at the same time fragile and transient. All the colors and their various tonalities result in expressive and powerful pieces of art. Each canvas has its own mood and character – and thus it allows a completely individual emotional experience to the spectator. Moreover the viewer steps into a synesthetic perception of colors and emotions.
In Cherry Blossom MadC accentuates her roots in graffiti by utilizing drips, splashes and flares. Instead of using graffiti writing in its formal and functional way, she developed an artistic practice based on capturing the energy and expression of it. Today her art pieces stand out due to the abstraction of lettering, harmonic color choices as well as use of divers media.
