Mad Rats is a duo of painters formed in 2015 by Gaulois and Boporc. Their artistic practice is part of the continuity of abstract expressionism. This is defined in their search by automatism: the dissociation of reason and gesture. Their work is based on spontaneity, in direct link with their graffiti practice. The approach of the two artists is above all processual and conceptual, they seek to represent the characteristics and strengths of graffiti without necessarily basing themselves on the formal aesthetics of it. Zeal, eagerness and speed are the key words of the Mad Rats.
