This monograph traces, for the first time, the career of the prolific artist and muralist Claudia Walde (born 1980), known as MadC. From her beginnings in the 1990s as a graffiti artist in the local scene in Bautzen, Germany, to large-scale public mural works on an international scale in more than 35 countries, MadC has become one of the most sought-after mural artists of our time. Characterized by abstract compositions of sweeping lines and transparent layers of vivid colors, her work has its roots in graffiti art but constantly blurs the lines between street art and fine art. Designed in close collaboration with the artist, the book features works on canvas and large-scale murals in settings around the world from London and Copenhagen to the Maldives and Abu Dhabi, from early works to recently made pieces.
