Artist Biography

Marcus Debie, aka GOMAD, is a colour-blind artist, born and raised in Holland where he still lives and works. Considered a pioneer of the Holland graffiti movement, Gomad’s thirty-year career has seen the artist paint in various locations around the globe.

Influenced by film, documentary and street art, Gomad’s work is described as post-neo graffitism, the fusion of photorealistic images in a mind bending surrealistic setup, against cubistic and organic shapes, in a Picasso or Hieronymus Bosch like composition.

Being colour-blind, Gomad has always had a specific relation with eyes and colours. When developing his signature style, this topic emerged as a reoccurring theme and the use of eyes became a moniker to his work. With qualifications in “Illustration” from the Academy of Arts of Sittard and experience in that industry, graphic elements also feature in the art of 𝗚omad.

Most recently, Gomad has been painting in oil paint, acrylics and spray paint creating versatility in his approach. Gomads works can be found in urban landscapes and contemporary art galleries throughout Europe, the US and beyond.
