Madsaki’s irreverent acrylic and aerosol paintings riff on well-known advertisements, films, and artworks. The Osaka-born, New Jersey–raised, Tokyo-based artist often filters famous compositions or movie scenes through his own graffiti-inspired style, resulting in simplified, uncanny new images. Madsaki attended the Parsons School of Design and graduated in 1996. It wasn’t long before he was exhibiting at galleries in Tokyo, Seoul, Los Angeles, New York, and beyond. His work has also found success on the secondary market, where his paintings regularly fetch six-figure sums. Informed by the artist’s experiences of cultural transience, Madsaki’s accessible style and instantly recognizable subject matter critique conceptions of value in the art world.
