Duo work on a large scale

Miel and Telmo started their company 'TelmoMiel' in the beginning of October 2012. Them meeting (in 2006) made attending the Academy a success. Almost everything that was learned, they got from working with each other. Telmo and Miel started to do murals together, with individual pieces into one composition. This evolved into painting one image together, creating concepts and designs as a duo.

With a respect for both visions, they found that ‘perspective’ is one of the most important & interesting aspects of art. The perspective of the maker compared to the viewer, the difference in intend, meaning and interpretation.
Recent paintings contain playfulness in abstraction of reality, attempting to make the viewer see subjects with a different eye; They grew into using multiple images, layered over one another. By cutting away a top layer, another comes forward to complete the design.

With references to the human and animal worlds they create complex creatures and fantastic scenarios.
Often executed on a monumental scale, creating huge architecturally sized paintings on building façades. In between they continuously paint on smaller scale, creating bodies of work to exhibit. Their studio work contains
individual and all carry the name TelmoMiel.

Their studio & gallery can be found in Rotterdam, named Sober Collective.
