Vieze Gluiperds ('Dirty Sneaks') by Jip Piet
In the spirit of 19th Century criminologists, seeking to determine the physiognomy of the ‘born criminal’, all-round Rotterdam artist and illustrator Jip Piet made a series of fountain pen drawings, spitting black ink onto white paper. Portraits of archetypal creeps, sloths,
mean hypocrites, and bastards. Politicians, pop stars, dictators, and other A-list celebrities: no mercy. And there a lot of them.
Jip’s portraits, which previously graced Paradiso’s outside walls, are instantly recognizable, but all with a touch of disgust. And there’s these dirty scratches all over their faces, like a leftover from a nasty contamination. The drawings are all made in the Corona period.
Is that why? Or is it the natural-born creep just as he is?
