About Madbutt

Madelaine Buttini is a visual artist currently living in Brisbane, Australia. She is exploring hand cut and digital collage using vintage and modern materials. She aspires to bring a moment of happiness and hope from her artwork, especially for those who feel lost and alone within our busy and sometimes overwhelming society. Her work reflects upon the challenges she has faced as a friend, girlfriend and feminist.

She has also exhibited internationally having shown works in London, New York and throughout the East Coast of Australia. Her work has been commissioned by Elle UK, Adidas Italy, Goop, The BBC, Califia Farms and Hamptons Sydney to name a few. In 2017, Lana Del Rey used her artwork to promote her single Love which lead to a crediting debate through Vice Magazine.

As a survivor of domestic violence and an advocate for ending stigma against depression, she is a major supporter of exhibiting within charity events to help raise funds for those in need. The charities she has supported are The Perspective Project UK, MQ Mental Health, The Heliotrope Foundation, Beyond Blue, Tara Brown Foundation and Friends With Dignity.
