The association Art Azoï works for the promotion of artistic creation in public space and carries major cultural projects with both French and international artists.
The purpose is part of a committed perspective that is to develop and sustain spaces of artistic expression, to be the link between art and the public, and to participate in the promotion of emerging talents. Part of this activity includes works on both permanent walls and ephemeral ones that changes regularly.
MadC was born as Claudia Walde in Bautzen, Germany in 1980. Throughout 20 years of constant engagement with graffiti and street art she worked her way up from a teenager starting off with a spray can to one of the worlds top street artists. She holds degrees in Graphic Design from two universities and published three books about street art. In parallel, the association organizes solo and group shows as well as the programming of different cultural events and workshops. Check out more photos of her interventions below.
Her canvases in acrylic and water colours are exhibited both in solo and group shows worldwide. But she also always had this special immediate connection with the street itself which shows in the numerous colourful murals she painted around the world.
The 500Wall in Leipzig, Germany, the Lady Digby mural in Dulwich, London, the Theatre Jean Vilar mural in Vitry near Paris or her latest mural, painted as a guest of the prestigious Mural Arts Program in Philadelphia, PA all show her distinctive transparent calligraphy style and vivid, strong colours. Recently, MadC put up a dynamic installation and pesented a walk-in interpretation of her artist home in yet another solo show in Paris, France.
Her work’s focus lies in dynamic calligraphy and transparency where all layers shine through and thereby capture the energy of painting in the street without using a direct graffiti language.
