Project Highlights 

2021 Gildemeester Bollenstreek

Gaïd Ombre has been invited to paint a man-sized tulip bulb. 80 artists made a design and paint it on the giant tulip bulb. The bulb is more than 1.90 high and has a surface of 6 m2. These tulip bulbs will be placed in the public space between Haarlem and Leiden, creating the largest work of art in the world. The bulbs can be seen in the entire 'Bollenstreek' region via a cycling route. This artwork will remain standing for at least five years. The artist first paint on a mini ceramic tulip bulb. Both the mini-bulb and the giant-bulb are now in the Black Tulip Gallery in Lisse. The giant bulb will be placed in 2022. For more information, see

Portret Floortje Dessing

In 2019 Gaïd Ombre was asked to participate in the Stars on the canvas program. Since a new presenter hosts the show (Eus), a test episode had to be made as well. They also asked Gaïd for this. During the trial filming Gaïd made a painting of Irene Moors. During the 'real' episode she painted Floortje Dessing. Gaïd Ombre made a large portrait on Dibond with an epoxy finish. Gaïd Ombre choose not to show her in a traditional pose but in action, with her camerawoman Rene who often travels with her and who was also one of the camerawoman during the recording of Sterren op het Doek. An adventurous portrait.
