Whipper Signs Street Art Graffiti Master “Kiwie”

Whipper Signs Street Art Graffiti Master “Kiwie”

Limassol based, character-driven messaging entity, Whipper has signed globally recognised Latvian based street artist “KIWIE,” who has been featured globally on the BBC and CNN. Whipper organised a party at its headquarters on Saturday, July 15 to celebrate the new collaboration.

Whipper’s CEO, Clark Westerman, the owner of Guaba Yiannis Antoniades, law firm partners, senior journalists from the local press and the founders of Limassol’s 20,000 strong, Street Life Festival looked on as a fresh KIWIE wall-paint took shape on the Company’s interior courtyard walls. “One of our investors who owns the building was only half joking when he stated the value of the building just tripled, due to “KIWIE.” Working in real time, KIWIE accomplished a new piece, which was the centerpiece of the festivities which took place at Whipper Limassol HQ. 

Asked why KIWIE was Whipper’s first signing, Westerman responded: “We’ve been underscoring how vital a character driven, truly open messaging platform would be for real time gamers, streaming content consumers-both passive and active-as well as sport enthusiasts and gamblers, so who more perfectly emulates our “no Silo’s,” and “no rules” than Street Artists? They are essentially the “Punk” movement of today. Whipper is Punk for communication. KIWIE is a maverick Punk-and distilled down, he’s a character concept artist. It’s a beautiful marriage. KIWIE’s last art show? He invited all attendees to steal his art -if they could find it! He created an elaborate scavenger hunt. Brilliant!”

Whipper is negotiating with several additional creators from varied backgrounds to contribute works to the messaging platform. “You’ll see a wide array of characters that you’ll be able to inhabit on any device-mobile, tablet, pc/online as well as smart tv in the coming months,”  stated Senior Director of Business Development, Terry Martin.

Headquartered in Limassol, Whipper recently confirmed it had closed its Second tranche of its Seed-Round which meant it had now raised a combined 1.2 Million Euro.

The Company develops an immersive ‘chat and play’ messaging platform that empowers users to speak and interact with their friends as any character they want to be, real or imaginary. The technology involves proprietary machine learning, speech, and audio processing elements.

Whipper is led by a founding team of Executives and Advisors from Viber, Riot Games, Netflix, Swiftkey, Amazon, Expedia and Omnicom.
