Michiel Folkers Profile picture This piece of art is partly made up of streetposters, collected from the walls of Amsterdam. A collage of teared streetposters in combination with spray paint creates a richly-textured total. Afterwards acrylic is applied to this work followed by application of a lacquer which gives the artwork a shiny finish.

This artwork is offered by Michiel Folkers

When asked about the background of a piece of art, artists often provide deep and 'interesting' stories about the ideas motivating the work. Simple works of art are thus transformed into something great to be praised. Michiel Folkers, or Gieler, will not bother you with stories about where he get his inspiration from and what drives him to paint. What matters to him is that a painting looks nice, and people want to hang it above their sofas. The technique he is using is mostly a combination of acrylic, spraypaint and silkscreening. Since 2014 he is using posters (he collects from walls out of the streets), hand tearing all the posters creates a unique image on canvas. His style can be described as popart or stencilart. Recurring topics are animals, women and heroes (or anti-heroes). Gieler lives in Amsterdam, the city where he started doing graffiti years ago.
