Born in 1972, Marcus Debie aka GOMAD is a graffiti artist and muralist from the Netherlands. Like many of his peers, he was heavily influenced by the iconic film ‘Beat Street’ as well as ‘Style Wars’ and started painting in the early 80’s. He got artistically active in the Southern Dutch graffiti scene and he is considered as one of the pioneers of the graffiti movement in this region.

The art of GOMAD is considered a pinnacle of post-neo graffitism, the fusion of photorealistic images in a mind-bending surrealistic setup. Combining organic and graphic compositions with old Dutch masters influences, done in a vibrant and unique idiosyncratic way. GOMAD artistic passion has been fostered by nature and people in addition to aspects of street art. His early interests in the graffiti art scene have seen the artist seek out an artistic path painting in language where both urban accents and murals play an influential role.
