Telmo Miel Artist and Muralist Rotterdam, Netherlands
A muralist and image-making duo from the Netherlands, Telmo Miel is Telmo Pieper and Miel Krutzmann. They have worked together since meeting at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam in 2007, officially becoming Telmo Miel in 2012. Their murals are both surreal and realistically rendered, with a tremendous amount of detail and vibrant color. Able to work fairly seamlessly, their styles have combined to such an extent that they're able to execute multiple areas in tandem, exchanging places and completing each other's work. They often execute their pieces on a monumental scale, creating huge architecturally sized spray-paint paintings on building facades. Combining multiple elements in a single composition, they layer references to the human and animal worlds to create complex creatures and fantastic scenarios. With positivity, humor and a touch of the romantic, their work is arresting and epic. [from thikspace website]
Dog Daze Of Summer 2017
Dog Daze Of Summer 2017, Artist: Telmo Miel, Side of Oregon Contemporary Theatre and Shaw-Med Building, Eugene, Oregon

Dutch partners Telmo Pieper and Miel Krutzmann came to Eugene with a drawing of what they thought would go on the side of the Oregon Contemporary Theatre/Shaw-Med building on Charnelton Street but changed plans upon arrival. Telmo Miel's creations are inspired by the mood of the cities they visit and they got such a relaxed vibe from Eugene they created "Dog Daze of Summer," a guy napping upon his dog. At first glance, the mural may look unfinished but look closely and you'll see things that might seem unfinished but are really odes to famous cartoon characters like Walt Disney's Pluto.[from 20x21 website]
