NEIL HARBISSON

CYBORG ARTIST

Born with the inability to see color, Neil Harbisson wears a prosthetic device — he calls it an "eyeborg" — that allows him to hear the spectrum, even those colors beyond the range of human sight. His unique experience of color informs his artwork — which, until he met cyberneticist Adam Montandon at a college lecture, was strictly black-and-white.

Harbisson's artwork blurs the boundaries between sight and sound. In his Sound Portraits series, he listens to the colors of faces to create a microtonal chord. In the City Colours project, he expresses the capital cities of Europe in two colors (Monaco is azure and salmon pink; Bratislava yellow and turquoise). Neil Harbisson - The Future is Exciting

MARCUS GOMAD DEBIE

URBAN FINE ARTIST

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 cubism, 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.

PHOTOGRAPHER & TED TALK SPEAKER

Vladimir Tisma, a young photographer and TED talk speaker from Geneva, has based many of his artistic creations and style on that very question. Color-blind himself, the artist combines his unique way of perceiving colors with the standard view of colors into one medium.
