Synopsis : 

Seventy-three year old Mr. Pink was a retired refuse collector who came to Britain from Jamaica in the nineteen-fifties. He lived alone in an extraordinary Victorian mansion on Lewisham Way, southeast London, which he adorned with his own unique designs in a Southeast London suburb. Inside and out, the house is decorated with the intense colors of the Caribbean, combined with other influences such as stained-glass windows from churches and his colorful garden. Mr. Pink's self-expression includes recording his own music and songs, making spectacular hats of leaves and flowers, and a deep spirituality which he shares with you.
Sadly, Brenton Pink died 8th June 2017
