  • Pee-Jay Czifra-Malawau
    Style: Contemporary urban art
  • Pee-Jay is an inspiring Dutch artist with an amazing story to tell. He has used his creativity in the fight of his life: healing from cancer and building himself a new life. A brave, and difficult fight he is proud to say, he has won!

    With all the national TV and radio attention Pee-Jay is receiving in his home country of the Netherlands, his star is quickly rising. There are many examples we can share with you, but we will highlight two. Pee-Jay was invited to design shoes for Mascolori Schoes, an exclusive Dutch designer shoes company. Another example is the invite Pee-Jay received to create a massive mural (350m2 or 3,768 ft2) for "Jantje Beton", a national organization promoting play facilities for youth in urban areas: "Never Stop Playing". This mural was revealed by Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands in 2018. How can we be anything else but super proud to represent Pee-Jay and his work?

    Pee-Jay wants you to know he very much enjoys commissioned work. He takes a very personal approach to these portraits as you can see and read about in our Introduction Blog. Interested? Please feel free to contact us for more information.

    In May 2018, we travelled to the Netherlands to meet with Pee-Jay in his studio. A full account of this meeting is available for you in our Meeting the Artists Blog page.

    Dutch artist Pee-Jay Czifra-Malawau, aka HippeShit 013

    Dutch artist Pee-Jay Czifra-Malawau (Jee-Jay for short) is an auto-didact painter and designer, and founder of HippeShit013, his life after cancer.

    While battling a tough fight with cancer at the age of 36, he uncovered his lost passion for creating art. He used art, painting and new-found creativity to his benefit; it became his own personal therapy, his path to healing.

    Exhibitions

    Dec 8 - Jan 31, 2019: "Art without Borders", group exhibition in Bragg Creek, AB (Canada)

    May 26-June 24, 2018: "Taste of the World", group exhibition in San Francisco, CA

    Pee-Jay gave up life’s certainties in supporting his family when he quit his job at the Department of Justice; a job he held for 17 years. With the full support of his family behind him, he is now focussing on his 2nd chance in life. Learning new techniques, finding his style, and most of all: creating art from the heart.


    With an irresistible urge to paint, Pee-Jay inhales inspiration and exhales creativity. "I want to welcome you to my work, my journey, my life after cancer."
