Pipsqueak was here

olivier pytel

Pipsqueak was here!!! is a prolific Amsterdam based duo, which loves to fool around with paint. They find the limited hours in the day a cause of frustration. Uninterrupted, they try to make their thoughts visual, triggered mostly by their idiosyncratic view on what most people experience as everyday life and consider normal. Pipsqueak was here!!! can’t resist the urge to remark upon this phenomenon in their work and they seek to show how far we humans are drifting away from our natural state in modern society. Something estranging occurs when placing extra emphasis on the ordinary. There is an endless stream of significant things among the ordinary that need highlighting and yet so little time, therefore why hold back? Paint can be attached to anything and why stop there?
