Marcus Stephen Gosse is a Newfoundland Mi'kmaq Artist, and a member of the Qalipu Mi’kmaq First Nation Band in Newfoundland. Marcus' grandmother, Alice Maude Gosse (maiden name-Benoit), is a Mi'kmaq Elder, who was born and raised in Red Brook, Newfoundland (Cape St. George-Western Newfoundland). Marcus was adopted by the Sandy Lake First Nations, Ontario Obijwe-Cree (Oji-Cree) in 2005, and given his native name Papamikapow which means "Traveler" (He who travels, not only physically, but, spiritually). Marcus incorporates ancient Mi'kmaq Petroglyphs and Hieroglyphs into his pieces, and paints landscapes in the places where he lives. Marcus has taught visual arts at the elementary, junior, and senior high levels; presented several workshops and lectures; organized art shows in various First Nations Communities; had a solo show in Truro, Nova Scotia at the Marigold Cultual Centre; and has participated in several group art shows. Marcus was commissioned by the Town of Torbay in 2005 to paint a 6o foot mural in Tapper’s Cove, Torbay, NL to celebrate "Come Home Year". One of his most recent paintings,"Seeking Mi'kmaq Enlightenment", is currently being exhibited by the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and is now a part of their permanent collection.
