About Mister Five

Mister Five, born and raised in Surinam, moved for a better living to Amsterdam, the Netherlands, when he was 13 years old. At first he had a weird vision about painters, with the main question: "Why do they do this?’. Instead of searching for the ‘why?’, at the age of 27 Mister Five bought a canvas and all necessities to start painting and discovered it himself.

As an immigrant of another culture, he felt alone a lot, but the moment he started painting the feeling of being alone changed to a magical moment of creativity. Mister Five’s paintings are a free way of art where you will find no rules. Colour is one of the strongest way to show his expressions, which you can find in the unique artworks that he creates.
