Winfred Dania is called the Van Gogh of Bonaire, as both felt misunderstood and resorted to painting as a means of expression. Van Gogh wanted to show a journey of self-discovery and portray his emotions thus paving the way for new trends in painting.
The deaf Winfred Dania is able to involve people in his personal experiences and dreams. He discovered a medium through which to recount the mythology of his island and reveal the symbolic meaning of numbers. Both communicate with their audience, timelessly as it were, through their works.
