About
Chad the Mad, Born in New Jersey is a self taught mixed media street artist. He developed and sharpened his skills through countless takes of trial and error. This further matured his aspiration by unconventional art subsequently leading to a refining of his own visual and conceptual vocabulary.
Mad lived and worked in Beirut, Lebanon – gathering audiences through live street performances and always indulging in the art scene to aspire and inspire. He also stands as the representative in Beirut for an award winning art community known as Secret Walls and Brand Ambassador of Converse and Liquitex in Beirut.
