SOME WORDS ABOUT MY WORK

The multidisciplinary practice of artist Jip Piet is stimulated by an existential approach and a commentary on socio-political structures that catch his eye. The narratives are at times linear and other times abstract; yet regardless of the output, whether it be in the shape of performances incorporating sound elements, installations or publications, his work is known to be vibrant and detailed, with abundant imagery and a sense of humour. The surreal characters that make an appearance in his work are brought forth under hypnotic circumstances that reflect dystopian or distressing environments while questioning patterns of individual and global struggles both in reality and within the imagination. Through his bold drawings, he attempts to breach the gaps between graphic design techniques and other forms of visual language. Using repeatedly the same patterns or images in different expressions, manoeuvring from drawing to silkscreen to clothes to sculptures to painting, allows him to dissolve the boundaries with which we perceive images and relate to them whilst creating his own set of forms and rules with which to approach these processes.
