"Pipsqueak Was Here!!! is our name. We have chosen this name for an important reason. It describes exactly what we are, small, insignificant, yet loud and presumptuous, working on our little voices to be heard. There are two of us, working together in various fields of art. We try to be influenced by everything we see, hear or feel and create our own twisted vision on all big and small issues that seem to demand our attention. Pipsqueak Was Here!!! is determined to make something out of this hotchpotch pile of interesting by-products of human presence."
The creative Dutch duo Pipsqueak was Here!!! impose no restrictions on themselves. They work on and with various materials and enrich the world with their playful, colourful and meaningful walls.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.
