Take some time and be lured into the aesthetic world of N.O.MADSKI
N.O.MADSKI „THE ESSENCE“
Indeed, graffiti accompanies an eternal, all-embracing process of renewal and thus is also part of the cycle of creative destruction. With fascinating objectivity, N.O.Madski has tasked himself with the search for his definition of graffiti’s quintessence. If you’re familiar with his otherwise brightly colored, large-format murals, you can only guess how difficult it must have been for him to figuratively remove himself in such a way as to give the more reserved venues the necessary and deserved attention.
It was the right decision. What arises after reduction to the essential – namely the name “Nomad” in an increasingly individual style – is an interplay with the space, putting the observer in a melancholic mood. Here they are again, the spaces of fear. Places of decay, which show you the border of your own finiteness in an unvarnished way. A melancholy which nevertheless in the next moment turns to interest: Where is it/what was it/why it is abandoned? Thus N.O.Madski has succeeded in not only placing graffiti in a spatial context, but also creating a surplus value that transcends style and place, and which stimulates reflection. Illustrative kitsch for embellishing morbid areas can stay where frightened people need their shallow façade. MOSES
