Thomas Eichholz was born on July 27, 1963 in Weimar, Thuringia and lived in Mecklenburg - Western Pomerania since 1965. He attended high school in Stralsund from 1980 to 1982. He always saw art as the most precious gift of his life. In 1983 he began self-taught art studies in Weimar under the guidance of Bernd Schlothauer and Thomas Rug. In 1984 he traveled to Dresden for a working stay of several weeks to the large Paul Klee exhibition in the Albertinum. Artistically Momass grew up in indirect effect of the Bauhaus Weimar and the Weimar School of painting.
In 1987 his artistic work was interrupted by military service in the NVA, which had a drastic effect on the course of his life. The year 1989 stands for a new beginning in his artistic work. In 2001, due to the inspiring pronunciation of his first name by his little nieces, he decided to use the artist name Momass and founded the Momass Group. On September 28, 2018, Thomas Eichholz passed away at the age of 55 in Stralsund, where he lived and worked since 1990.
His thoughts are reflected in his paintings....
...Everything is mystery and revelation
but the ultimate truth rests in silence,
the ultimate reality is
inexpressible, unspeakable for man.
The deepest sense of truth is open and wide.
All I am looking for is the beginning.
