about Gang of Five...

Gang of Five are a group of dynamic individuals whose aim is to collaborate in ambitious, challenging and highly artistic projects. Made up of four established artists and a curator, GO5 are brought together by their vision of a DIY aesthetic, illustration, satirical dark humour and social commentary. We have been artists, curators, educators and involved in the arts sector throughout our careers and believe that by coming together and working as a team we can support each other through group collaborations and individually with personal projects.
