About Pepijn:
Pepijn studied graphic and typographic design at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague, The Netherlands (Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunsten, Den Haag).
After graduation Pepijn focused more on illustrating and painting. This was the beginning of Cirque d’extraordinaire or what later became his alias and studio name ‘Cirque de Pepin’.
Pepijn’s circus, as a metaphor for a place where anything can happen.
Around 2002 Pepijn came into contact with ceramics. A world of possibilities revealed itself. Nowadays Pepijn works explicitly in these various disciplines. With an emphasis on craftsmanship and detail.
Pepijn’s works combine different influences. We see colorful, detailed paintings, drawings and ceramic sculptures, of dressed mice, owls, Chinese dragons and other animals and fantasy creatures.
They seem to have stepped out of a fairy tale world. The imagery is that of the comic strip, and often humorous. Yet they are anything but childlike images, that only reassure or amuse. They are not so much comical. But perhaps rather tragicomic, with a deeper meaning, which is rooted in history, or historical stories.
Themes that regularly return are vulnerability and finiteness versus the power of humans, animals and nature. The work, which starts with an illustrative sketch, is usually based on a historical fact or character, where the fantasy of Pepin eventually runs away with.
