9 Rue Cloche Percé, Artist Unknown

 

Drippy was born in Paris out of a piece of street art found off of the Rue de Rivoli. Though the artist and source of inspiration are unknown, my affection for the original was due to its resemblance to the Parisian bollard, an quirky, yet mundane, piece of the Parisian streetscape. Drippy has been reinterpreted several times through drawing, sculpture, collage, and stickers.
