Artist Bio:

Pipsqueak's works range from miniatures as 'Sleeping Giant' to whole sides of buildings as 'Paper, Scissors, Rock' for the Student Hotel in Amsterdam. In 'Paper, Scissors, Rock' we see a girl, a bear, and many bumblebees in the background. With this image the artists want to show that every being has a related dependence and infighting with each other. The bear eats honey and needs the bumblebee for that. The bumblebee gets banned by man because of the use of pesticides, but man also need the bumblebee for the pollination of crops. Man threats the habitat of the bear, but when they meet in the wild the bear is the winner. Every being is dependent on the other, and without each other the natural balance in the ecosystem is disrupted. Pipsqueak use a wide variety of materials, like canvas, recycled wood and neon. But also skateboards, cars, scooters, and viaducts are provided with the most beautiful creations. Often as commissioned works, sometimes as donation to the environment. They work with stencils, paint with brushes or rollers and they make use of collage and 'solvent transfer'.
