NPL Projects is thrilled to introcude the following masterpiece by Claudia "MadC" Walde:
This incredible new work, the 1000 Wall is MadC's largest work to date. This is the first work I've curated and organized through my new venture NPL Projects so we had to come out of the gate with a bang! This mural was produced for the Wabash Arts Corridor, becoming largest mural in the public art district. Working with Claudia "MadC" Walde - one of the most renowned street artists of this generation - has been a dream. I am indebted to her for bringing her extraordinary vision, tirelessly energy, amazing talent and endless humor to this project, for all Chicago public art fans to enjoy.
Thanks to my partner in crime Abie Vasquez of AB Productions for masterful production and site management. Thanks to MadC's assistant and brilliant street artist Hans Schmitter aka Haks180. More thanks to Marco Prosch for expert documentation and being a lovely collaborator. Much gratitude to Adam Angotti and Jairo Buitron for daily production support, to Jenni Button for the curatorial recommendation, for projection magic from Nathan Destro and killer drone photography from Jayson de Leon.
ALL of us are grateful to The Paragon Chicago for hosting the mural and Murphy Development Group (special shout out to Chris Horney the project mastermind) for commissioning and supporting this project so generously. You brought our vision to fruition.
This is the Street Art Dream Team. More to come.
