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, found and encaustic materials.
When painting landscapes, they are inspired by descriptions and prefer to focus on the emotions evoked rather than a 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.
