Maddison Kitching’s penchant for painting

Since graduating from RMIT with a Bachelor of Communication Design last year Melbourne artist, designer and painter Maddison Kitching has started his own studio and had his work shown in a bunch of exhibitions around town.

Maddison started Daisylegs studio with a couple of mates from uni, where he spends most of his creative hours painting portraits and murals of his close mates.

“We’re a hands-on studio specialising in design, murals and illustration. It’s been great so far and we have learnt a lot in a short space of time,” Maddy tells us. “Most days I kind of get this craving like I’m really hungry, and then I can’t stop thinking about painting or drawing. I think it relaxes me and I kind of need that to relax.”

So how does he go about starting a new painting?

“Each painting is different. Generally I will see something which inspires me, so I’ll start to think about ways I can incorporate elements of the image into my own work. Then I usually get started and see where the piece takes me – I try not to plan it too much.”

Maddy has previous exhibiting at the Henley Club, Beggar Man Thief and Nexus Virtual Gallery. He is currently putting together a new exhibition that will launch later this year at House of Bricks in Collingwood, which will consider the effects of social media and the ‘death’ of the post.

In the meantime though, it’s all heads down and brushes up: Maddy will be working away at Daisylegs doing everything from painting and web design through to comics.
