MadC

Claudia Walde holds degrees in Graphic Design from the University of Art and Design, Halle, and Central Saint Martins College, London. Valuable experiences from the world of academic life were preceded by an active rapport with the graffiti and street art phenomena when she was only a teenager. As an artist she has completed hundreds of murals across the world however, Claudia also published two books on street art in 2007 and 2011. As a young investigator of an entire movement (she carried out the research for the books in her twenties), Claudia showed remarkable potential for cultural and anthropological insight. MadC was born in 1980, in Bautzen, GDR as Claudia Walde. She is a citizen of the world, currently based in Germany.
