"Swip Stolk was involved with Provo and with Fluxus, the radical art approach also influenced by Willem de Ridder and Wim T. Schippers. His roots are undeniably in the 1960s. In the street demonstrations, in the social and cultural revolution that took place, in the birth of youth culture with its own fashion, music, language and mores, and its own publications, such as ‘Provo’ and ‘Hitweek’. He was there from the beginning. In the streets he learned that graphic design is not only about esthetics but also about 'the effects of visual confrontation.'" "Let’s have a look at some of the highlights of Swip Stolk’s oeuvre. In his first years as a graphic designer he created a yearly calendar for De Boer & Vink graphic industries in Zaandijk. They gave him the freedom to experiment and use all available techniques. His designs did away with conventions. They were more than just calendars: they became symbols of a new approach of graphic design and print technique. What he developed could be seen as ‘visual irritation’ and would become characteristic of all of Swip Stolk’s later designs." —https://www.dutchgraphicroots.nl/?p=1138
