Soten and I painted a mural dedicated to candy, hot chocolate, ice cream and everything sweet – the Sugar Rush Wall. It is situated in Copenhagen, to be exact in Nørrebro’s De gamles by park, with kindergarten, playground and a little zoo with chicken, goats and rabbits. That made it especially fun to paint this theme in the sun. Check this piece of cake in the little video and the photos. Thanks to Martin Haakan / martinhaakan.com for the nice action shots.
I’ll participate in the group show “Billboard painters” at Galleri NB in Viborg, Denmark, opening this Friday 4-6pm. Other artists shown are Anders Reventlov Larsen, Blade, Horfee, John Howard, Ken Sortais and Christian E. Dinesen. The show runs until 3rd of August.
Currently we have a bad flood in Germany. I keep my fingers crossed for friends and family that things get back to normal soon.
On Friday 31st of May at 3pm UK time, the 4 brand new MadC prints will go online for sale on graffitiprints.com. We aimed for a print that is as close to my original canvases as possible, therefore they even come with a super gloss varnish on top.
The first edition is a mixed media print – archival pigment print on 300 gsm paper with a 5
colour screen print & super gloss on top. This is an edition of 45 and will cost £150.
The other 3 editions are mixed media prints – archival pigment print on 300 gsm paper with a 1 colour screen print & super gloss on top. They come in bright pink, black and gold variants, each an edition of only 7 pieces and will cost £195.
All prints are signed in front and back, just like I do on my canvases, and are stamped and numbered as well. The prints are size 65cm x 49cm. Check out the pictures here to see the large edition and the 3 small editions. Please note: these prints are only available at graffitiprints.com!

For the Dulwich Street Art Festival – Baroque the Streets – several artists were invited to paint murals that are based on a painting from the Dulwich Picture Gallery. In addition to those murals we also painted a house in Lordship Lane outside and inside. The wall I painted is situated in Belair Park, right next to West Dulwich station. Therefore I decided to use one of Jan van Huysum’s flower paintings as a base. For the room inside the house, I decided to use the whole space, rather than just painting the walls. Here’s a film on my short trip as well as a bunch of photos. The last shot was taken by Alex Ellison - thanks!
„This December, a true workshop highlight is waiting for all art interested people
in South Africa. The re-known street artist MadC and the pioneer in spray can-airbrush
mixing technique Lars Laurus Oschatz are coming all the way from Germany
to South Africa. From December 14th to December 15th 2013 they will give a 2 days workshop in Midrand near Johannesburg. Participants will learn the professional
and creative handling of the spray can in combination with the airbrush system and acrylic markers. This technique can be applied to both – large and small surfaces, no matter if it is a mural, a bonnet or a canvas – immediately and with little effort you will reach a lasting and sophisticated result.“ To sign up contact Laurus here.
I painted a bunch of new canvases and pieces on paper. Some of them are on display in Dulwich for the Dulwich Street Art Festival and some are available at Pure Evil Gallery in London. The piece below is called “1301″ and was painted with watercolours and ink. This one is sold, but you can contact Pure Evil Gallery for other works here.
I’ll be participating in this year’s Dulwich Street Art Festival – Baroque The Streets. Other participants are Conor Harrington, ROA, Nunca, Shok-1, Remi Rough and more. We’ll be painting murals based on paintings from the Dulwich Picture Gallery. So I’m sure it will be an interesting event not to miss. To find out more, check the Street Art London website here.
