to ‘pree’ is to look on someone, usually with a little touch of envy … ‘why yu a pree pan me’ …

and so, in the case of this art you go to pree mart to buy the kind of things that will cause people to look at you but also the characters, in good traditional dready fashion, are all looking out, ‘preeing’ on you the viewer … or perhaps you are ‘preeing’ pon dem

seeeeeen!
