About

Mads Madison

 Mads Madison (°1985, Germany) is a self-taught visual artist who uses analogue photos and techniques to create unique pieces. His work is influenced by his deep affection for skateboarding, music and experimental art. For Madison there’s no right and wrong, there’s only happy little accidents. For Madison creating art means getting a chance to give something back to society by contributing to projects like Viva Con Agua and Hardcore Help Foundation.

For  Wasted Films he upcycles pieces that were declared ‘trash’.  The results are sometimes deconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. His works are on the one hand touchingly beautiful, on the other hand painfully surreal. He aims to leaves the viewer orphaned with a mix of conflicting feelings and thoughts. By parodying certain formal aspects inherent to our contemporary society, he makes works that can be seen as a manifesto or simple self-portraits. Madison manipulates the viewer to create confusion and creates intense personal moments, luring the viewer round and round in circles.
