Mads Madison
Mads Madison is a visual artist driven by skateboarding, abrasive music, and experimental art. He creates unique pieces using various chemicals and techniques. In the process, traditional rules are ment to be bent, broken, cut, scratched, and transformed into something new and exciting. This parody of formal aspects inherent to our contemporary society leads to works which can be seen both as a manifesto and as simple self-portraits. There is no right and wrong to Madison – only little – and sometomes beautiful – accidents.

For his Wasted Films project Madison upcycles bits and pieces of photography declared ‘trash’ beforehand. By deconstruction, the original message is distorted and its meaning shifted. It leads to a multiverse of interpretational facets and fragements, leaving the audience orphaned with a mix of conflicting feelings and thoughts. Madison manipulates the viewer, he creates confusion, setting his audience on a wrong track or luring it in circles. This makes his works touchingly beautiful – and painfully surreal.

In the creation of art, Madison follows two main objectives. Number one: Harm this only world we share as little as possible by using mainly recycled and renewable ressources as well as climate-neutral processes. Number two: Give something back to society by supporting both national and international charity organisations, no matter if it is a local skatepark or a facilty to provide fresh water in Africa.
