Born in Antibes, 1987.                                                                                                            Bachelor’s degree ENSAV, La Cambre, Brussels, Belgium.                                             She currently lives and works in Biarritz, south of France.

Madi  develops her own style through graphic research while multiplying collaborations, paintings & murals.

She's constantly trying to evolve. At the beginning her work was in black and white, full of meticulous details. Her production of drawings is obsessive as a travel inside her head, showing imaginary characters, textures, sensations, dreams & fantasies.
Encouraged by her friend SupaKitch, she learned the tattoo. This specific technic brings control, rules and precision in her life. So naturally pushed her back to her first love, spontaneity of creation that leads to painting.
She immerses herself in a colorfull production, less controlled, unexpected and more instinctive. 

Her work is both singular, intimate and endearing. She paints because she needs to. She's letting the viewer enjoy the conception of a private universe free from any boundaries. As if she was searching for an absolute peace which only the act of painting could fulfill. The main themes are female characters, scenes involving animals, humans, chimeras, flowers and natural elements.
