Born in Paris, MAD325 started graffiti in 1989 under the name "MAD". In 2015, the artist added 325 to his name in tribute to his grandfather imprisoned by the Nazis at Rawa-Ruska camp (stalag 325). Her painting focuses on individual and collective behaviour in social life and the fragility of these relationships, as well as the links that unite people and the events through which these links are forged and unwound: in a mixture of violence, anxiety, desire, fear of the sacred, despair, decline and the search for love.

His painting also focuses on pathologies related to transgression and the sadomasochistic conception of human relations. In form, the features and lines that cross her characters express these social phenomena structured by a relational dynamic. The crossing of lines through them is similar to the interactions determined by different social positions that manifest themselves through behaviours and cognitive mechanisms such as prejudices and stereotypes produced during our exchanges.

The transition from the patriarchal, puritanical and moralizing era, which encouraged the repression of desires, generated shame and guilt in our era, permissive and individualistic, which induces perversion, is a great source of inspiration.

"Writing is not describing. Painting is not painting. Likelihood is only trompe-l’oeil."

"...you feel like you’re in the heart of human matter...nothing smooth..." Andrée Pulicani

"Thank you for your work, which is both strong in symbolism and rich in meaning, very much in tune with current events, I love it very much and it is sincere" Aurélie Leroy

"A totally modern cubism! Bravo!" joseph De Valois

"I like what you do because it’s just beautiful. Your drawings don’t look like anyone but yourself. It’s authentic. This is what we call art." Pat Deau

"I like your technique with its dynamic features, which bring out faces with the softness of the human being in a light-dark contrast that gives strength to the painting" Wioletta Nasilowska

Note: "a work of art is the unique product of a unique temperament. Its beauty comes from what its author is what he is and by no means from what others want. In fact, as soon as an artist becomes aware of what others want and strives to satisfy them, he ceases to be an artist. He becomes a craftsman, dull or amusing; a merchant, honest or dishonest; he can no longer claim to be an artist.
