Maddox Pratt - Visual Artist

Maddox Pratt is an emerging artist living in Munich, working primarily in acrylic and encaustic to make large-format expressionist landscape and abstract paintings. They also work in mixed media, digital artforms, print work, performance, and poetry. Their most well-known work is the hypertext poem Anhedonia.

As a visual artist, Maddox Pratt works with paint, pastel, and encaustic materials. They are inspired by descriptions of landscapes, and prefer to focus on the emotions evoked rather than an recreation of the event or place. 

Their encaustic work utilizes text, paint, and wax, combining poetry with texture. They use found text and erasure/black out techniques to create poetry. 

Their digital poetry has been featured in the book Videogames for Humans and mentioned in Hybrid Play: Crossing Boundaries in Game Design, Players Identities and Play Spaces. 

Maddox Pratt is an emerging artist and is currently looking for gallery representation in Germany.
