Netherlands - sittard


Marcus Debie aka GOMAD is a color blind Dutch artist, born in 1972 and raised in the city of Sittard in the south of Holland where he still lives and works. Heavily influenced by the iconic film “Beat Street” as well as the graffiti docu “Style Wars”, Gomad got artistically active all the way back to the early 80’s in the Southern Dutch graffiti scene. He is considered as one of the pioneers of the graffiti movement in his region and has since exhibited his murals and paintings in Belgium, Germany, France, UK, Italy…

He worked as a graphic designer for 25 years, doing murals as a side job all until he got more and more commissioned murals projects and became a full time artist. Nowadays he works as an international urban fine artist & muralist doing murals and paintings for exhibitions wherever his art brings him. Gomad’s work is considered a pinnacle of 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, combining oil paint, acrylics and sprays in a vibrant and unique idiosyncratic way.
