Creative duo; Telmo Pieper and Miel Krutzmann worked on their creative abilities from a young age. They met at the art academy in 2006. Miel (31) painted walls for several years with spray paint, and showed Telmo (26) the possibilities in graffiti and street art. Since that time they work together seem less, as they both enjoy working in realistic styles.
The duo decided to take their skill and ambitions to the next level, starting the creative company ‘TelmoMiel’ in the beginning of October 2012.
The art they make has stories to tell, but not all stories are intended. Interpretation is an ongoing study in their process and final results. Their more recent body of work contains playfulness in abstraction of reality, attempting to make the viewer have a different perspective on the subjects used. Their imagery language evolved into a use of multiple layers that interact with one another to form one piece, just like the minds of these two artists which need to come together as one very often.
The result is usually very surrealistic, with a keen eye for the technicality of realism. They work on the same mural pieces together and are able to switch places when ever wanted or needed. Studio work contains individual and collaborative pieces, but all carry the name TelmoMiel.
Their studio & store can be found in Rotterdam, named ‘Sober concept store’.
