The Urban Art Studio for Post Graffiti, Street Art Murals and Paintings
‘Marcus GOMAD Debie – Urban Art Studio’ is led by color blind artist Marcus Debie (1972) aka ‘GOMAD’ and his wife Nancy Montforts. They’re specialized in post-graffiti, street art murals and urban art paintings. Marcus got artistically active over 35 years ago in the Southern Dutch graffiti scene. He dedicated a lifetime of effort towards perfecting his craft which he now calls ‘urban fine art & muralism’.
‘During my education in illustrations at the School of Arts in Sittard (1992-1996) I developed a keen interest in realism, surrealism and strongly influenced by the old Dutch masters. All of which can be found in my work today. My work can be characterized by a layered fusion of photorealistic graffiti art with surreal influences, combined with graphic and organic color elements. I am inspired by and love to work with eyes, faces, hands and nature, resulting in a strong composition. Colors versus concrete, always with an eye for detail and attention to the environment. Small details create the bigger picture.
