"... [Maddy Butcher]'s pieces do not fade into the background. Her works energise spaces but also set out to activate or compliment a uniqu environment or subject." Maddy paints faces and asbtracts with vibrancy, urgency and a playfulness that's more constructed than it first appears."
Maddy has earned a reputation for large-scale colorful abstracts and intricate portraits of positive subjects and energetic themes. With an MA in Fine Art at Edinburgh College of Art & Edinburgh University, Maddy has exhibited at the Royal College of Arts, Dubai World Art Show, Atlanta Tech Square, Middle East ComicCon, the Barber Institute, Beirut Biel, locations across South Carolina, Italy and abandoned Scottish churches, as well as creating street art, live art and murals in New York, London, Dubai, Marseilles, Barcelona and a school in remote Northern India.
She has worked with brands including W, Vans, Cosmopolitan, the Body Shop, Cadbury’s, Kraft, Radisson Blu, Campo Viejo, Rixos and Victoria Secret.
Previously an award-winning advertising creative for agencies including Saatchi & Saatchi & TBWA, in 2016 Maddy packed in the rat-race to concentrate on painting full time.
