MadC is known for her abstractions and deconstruction of lettering. The series entitled First Lines refers to the return of the white background in the paintings as well as the practice of graffiti writers to paint a first line (sketch). The first lines or sketches are a crucial prerequisite to the creation of a graffiti piece and thus an important heritage of the graffiti culture.
Lately the artist has begun to accentuate her roots in graffiti by utilizing drips, splashes and flares. Instead of using graffiti writing in its formal and functional way, she has developed an artistic practice based on capturing its energy and expression. The paintings demonstrate the artist’s delicate usage of colours. Due to the white background, the colors stand out even more and crown her iconic style of painting. As the artists keeps her first line as a final result, there’s nothing that she can hide in her paintings.
