BiP Is Hiring

Thomas MacMillan Photo You could be the new spokesperson for New Haven’s mystery street artist—if you can pass the test.

Believe in People (BiP), the anonymous street artist who has made New Haven his open-air gallery over the last couple of years, announced Tuesday that he’s looking for a new communications manager.

BiP’s identity is a closely guarded secret. Aside from a single on-the-record interview and his Twitter account, BiP has communicated with the public only through an intermediary known as “Neils.”

In a Tuesday afternoon tweet, BiP announced that Neils is retiring, and that he’s looking for a replacement.

The following tweet, three minutes later, revealed how applicants can announce their interest in the position:

Neils’ responsibilities have included fielding press inquiries as well as coordinating property owner cooperation on some of BiP’s murals, including ones on Hull’s art supply store (pictured below) and, recently, at a lumber yard in West Haven.

Think you’ve got what it takes? Contact Neils.

Best of luck to Neils. It was a pleasure to work with you on the WHL project.
