Five Eight

FIVE EIGHT is a multidisciplinary artist from Montreal with a graffiti background, who’s work is inspired by visual communication technologies. His current works on canvas are distorted images of cloth-draped figures lit by neon light and are representative of his personal knowledge of neon glass blowing and video circuit bending. FIVE’s style is technical, measured and concerned with light, colour, and contrast. His complete body of work includes studio paintings, neon light sculptures, and large-scale murals.

FIVE was apprentice to glass-blower Gerald Collard (Atelier Neon Family), was assistant to artist Gene Pendon (HVW8 Production House), and completed a residency with artist David Schluss (Blue Gallery).
