If you ask Nomad what his profession or mission in life is, he answers: “Freedom”.
Nomad is the blueprint of the original street artist. Educated and inspired by skateboarding, Hardcore Punk, Graffiti, Hip Hop and Rave Countercultures of the 80′s, his visual imprint on the early Berlin street art scene was and still is immense. His thousands of freestyle roadside trash paintings and marker drawings on Berlin’s streets, earned him countless admirers and collectors and made his art visible all over the world – from blogs and books to the homes of Hollywood Stars.
His style – created by his lifestyle as a vagabond – is always evolving and incorporates “the necessary” – as he proclaims to use whatever style or material is available to maximize the focus on the pleasure of the creation. This can be a Renaissance inspired canvass in his studio, a marker scribble on a doorway or trashcan, a graffiti bombing on the wall of a huge dam or a sculpture made out of some tumbleweeds in the desert.
Nomad’s works magically reminds us that art does not need boundaries, nor does the artist. It’s a simple celebration of freedom, life and its vanity. It’s a healthy breath of fresh air in a world that is tied up with circumstances and definitions.
Nomads work appears in the private Art collections of Shepard Fairy, Salma Hayek, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher.
