  • Bio

    Philip ‘Fifi’ Rademaker (1944, Curaçao) 

    Philip Rademaker is a multi-talented artist. Besides being a gifted painter, he is also well reputed among others as a poet, writer, actor, scene director and illustrator. His poems are striking by his expressive and flowery use of the Papiamentu language. Besides poems, Rademaker has also published several essays and short stories.

    With his ‘material paintings’, which contain recognizable pieces of discarded material that are re-used in a new way, Rademaker creates a whole new reality.
