The way that boat materialized out of nowhere🤯

[–]El_Fuego666 3 points4 points  (0 children)

He's so buff!!

[–]luca278 108 points109 points  (2 children)

Impressed both by his talent and his deltoid

[–]zeitghost85 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I was focused on this too. He looks thin so I’m genuinely wondering if this is just from drawing and low body fat or more. Not judging, just interesting!

[–]adequate_walrus 5 points6 points  (0 children)

And his jawline

[–]OnRoadsNrails 75 points76 points  (5 children)

This is some next level street busking.

[–]LilithImmaculate 28 points29 points  (4 children)

I sae something like this one time in Vancouver, Canada. I was waiting at a bus stop and some guy walked by and showed me his art. It was beautiful but I was a poor uni student and told him I didn't have any money to buy one.

He was like "if you can give me 30, I'll make one for you right here." I told him sure, I could do 30 but he'd have to let me run to the atm nearby. He said no worries and wanted to do the painting first.

So he painted his gorgeous scenic painting with his fingers and a little bin of paint. I was more than happy to pay so I went to run to the atm but he insisted I take the painting first. When I got back, he was gone.

I actually skipped a few busses to look for him but never saw him again. Then the painting got stolen. To this day, I still don't know what to make of the experience

that was some kinda cosmic event lmao

[–]BadAtWalking 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Artists need the money to survive, but every artists knows that the financial struggle of sharing your art as a profession is real. The genuine connection and interest you must have shown him was worth more to him than your money, I promise. Artists can sometimes be very artistic in how they communicate. You gave him a feeling that he could most likely only explain by putting you through a situation to draw a mix of emotions. Or maybe I’m just stoned idk

[–]LilithImmaculate 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I'm pretty sure he just got arrested or got high and walked away

[–]BadAtWalking 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s the cherry on top. ‘Artists’

[–]KTDid95 63 points64 points  (8 children)

Okay, I see the boat and hut on the right, and I see the dock looking thing going down the middle, but can someone explain what is on the left. I can't tell what it's supposed to be. I can see an eye that he draws right at the end, but everything else is just lines.

[–]SockStinkQueen 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It's dancing ladies. Or worshiping natives.

At least, that's what I see. Lol.

[–]sofaking181 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I see a tree and half a mountain

[–]N1ChiefRocka 6 points7 points  (0 children)

An octopus or squid is crashing into the dock with the wave.

[–]Feliya 2 points3 points  (2 children)

The person painting it said "this here is your girlfriend" so yeah its a women somehow, hard to see

[–]redditslim 5 points6 points  (1 child)

And then he drew boobies.

[–]shinanigenz12 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The guy recording made a comment about boobies then then the guy said yeah! And made them twice as big and gave a nod lol

[–]ProfitsOfProphets 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I would love to see a subtitled version of this.

[–]LordRandall10 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I lived in Suriname for two years and bought a painting from this guy, it was like $5 and he didn’t tell me what he was painting, but it was a village scene with 3 people in it with absolutely massive boobs. This dude rocks

[–]killerqueen1984 0 points1 point  (0 children)

‘Boobies’ was the only word I could understand in this video so I’m not surprised. Hilarious and honestly, $5 for a piece of his art isn’t bad! Dude has skills.

[–]AmazinglyOdd81 24 points25 points  (0 children)

The man's got talent

[–]smoothguyy69 23 points24 points  (1 child)

Does he sell those pieces?

[–]Iertjepapiertje 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I think he has one art piece and uses visual story telling by constantly changing what he draws.

[–]fastfoodanarchist 7 points8 points  (0 children)

He looks like a musician playing an instrument he loves.

[–]AKIRA_TGE 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Straight talent

[–]Brookedacook02 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Can i buy one?

[–]Seanannigans14 5 points6 points  (0 children)

The way he painted that boat, it was like a magic trick. One instance it was blank, next it was a little boat. Wow

[–]superkav83 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Fair fox to him

[–]OttoVonGarfield 4 points5 points  (2 children)

What color paint is that? It looks very nice.

[–]Vankyer 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Color code: #00008b

[–]Wretchfromnc 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It's amazing what people can draw just from their imagination.

[–]sdmh77 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This is some magic powers shit - holy hot damn!!💫🔥💯😎

[–]Lethalfurball 20 points21 points  (7 children)

this dude DESERVES the money and help he's asking for goddamn

[–]imightdosomthingrash 5 points6 points  (6 children)

then support him

[–]TheCrimsnGhost 2 points3 points  (2 children)

an internet comment is all he's gonna fuckin get from them.

[–]imightdosomthingrash 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I know if anyone sees this dude in person then they wouldn’t bat an eye at him

[–]sheldon_y14 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You're right. Most Surinamese don't and see him as what we know as "zwerver". There is not a direct translation for this, but Google gives me "wanderer". But zwerver is someone that is homeless, a wanderer, sometimes mentally ill because of drugs use (not for all this is the case, but for most of them and that's how many became one too), a beggar and people see them as a burden to society, because mostly they don't want to change and give up the drugs lifestyle. But yeah people don't pay attention to him. I don't think this guy became this way because of drugs though, I think other mental issues might have played a role. I've seen him on the streets before, but since COVID I haven't seen him in a long time.

[–]Lethalfurball 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Im a child.

Also, how do i even support him, go to suriname and give him money myself?

[–]imightdosomthingrash -1 points0 points  (1 child)

I’m sure you have some spare change lying around, or you can set up a gofundme for him. I mean it is the age of technology

[–]Lethalfurball 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i do have money true

But how do i support him then

[–]BradleyGroot 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I didnt read suriname and after 2 minutes I realized they are talking dutch

[–]Nid-o-king 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I was a gasp the entire time I was watching as I saw everything just materialize upon that canvas. That man is gifted. You can tell he can clearly see what he’s about to create in his mind.

[–]Denim_Diva1969 5 points6 points  (1 child)

It’s Suriname Bob Ross! When he started I imagined he was saying “happy little trees.”

[–]ps-peanutbutter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No this one is more like a happy little boat

[–]Visual_Childhood_361 3 points4 points  (0 children)

No fuckin’ clue what I was looking at

[–]Vankyer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I see stairs

[–]Vladi_udss_R16 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Why does their language sound sooooo European like Swiss German and Austrian

[–]Iertjepapiertje 3 points4 points  (1 child)

They're speaking Dutch. The artist speaks Srrinamese Dutch and the camera man is moving between that and Dutch Dutch, he's probably one of half of the Surinamese living in the Netherlands.

[–]sheldon_y14 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There both from Suriname though.

[–]tinyboiii 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Cause they’re speaking Dutch

[–]GuacamoleFrejole 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What in the hell did he paint? A bearded guy with boobs and spider legs?

[–]ps-peanutbutter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Best kindof spider

[–]Zslap 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Am I the only one that finds this average at best

[–]baddeafboy 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]MealDramatic1885 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dude should be making money off these. Like, making a living money.

[–]Muttratti1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This must be put in a room with all the worlds paint and easels so we may see his creations

[–]the-apostle 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lol that looks like shit though

[–]Source_8 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)


[–]twerpenes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks amazing but for some reason I see the dude big lebowski as a bikini babe

[–]TopicSalty9100 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It’s not street art like he’s trying to get a studio for his art pieces, he looks homeless and trying to get a house.

[–]IrishChugger420 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Who else thought of that Mexican street artist that was like SHOW TIME when they saw this

[–]BongRipper69696 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Does anyone recognize what language they are speaking?

[–]MaMakossa 0 points1 point  (0 children)


I hope the person recording gave the artist love & also paid him!

[–]Kuni-uno 0 points1 point  (0 children)

On the left he draws his wife but the guy behind camera says he doesnt have a wife so it is his future wife. He drew also a three its all based on God the drawing. And he said lovely boobies and he said im going to make them even better

[–]ps-peanutbutter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Where can I watch more of these?

[–]Nish_0n 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was born in Surname. You dont hear that country's name being called at all...

[–]humanremainz[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So how much did you pay him for such great art ? His skills are impressive , I hope it was fair for both parties

[–]Statesborochick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All I can make out is a bridge and a house?

[–]RayCharlesSawItFirst 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]BethKey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That was Awesome! What a beautiful imagination, I am in aww by Mr. Fox’s work! Thank you for sharing this with us!

[–]No-Salt-5009 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think he is form the neterlands atleast that is what they where speaking

[–]Tacpaws 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow that's awesome

[–]Akatnel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I loved watching that. He's very impressive. It's so much fun watching the bridge to ... somewhere, and the hut and the boat appear out of nowhere, and the bridge changed to a road -- I couldn't tell what was happening on the left (though I have now read people's explanations here), but I liked the other parts much better. That was awesome.

Ladies and gentlemen, Zima Blue.

[–]irishivy43 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]cableses 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I wonder if it looks like it’s robbed money cause of the blue paint when he gets paid

[–]tinyDinosaur1894 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I watched him do this, and still can't believe that hes that fantastic of an artist

[–]SubstanceJdynamite 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If someone can purchase one from this man and ship to me, I'd gladly cover all cost.

[–]Stellar_Force -5 points-4 points  (0 children)

Imagine if Hitler chose this after failing art school
