Biography / TELMO MIEL

Telmo Pieper and Miel Krutzmann make up the artistic duo known as ‘Telmo Miel’. Each artist comes from their own respected backgrounds with their own history behind them but the both have come together to combine their spray-painting techniques with realism, abstraction and surrealism. Telmo Miel’s works are featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect’.

Telmo Pieper hailing from Rotterdam, Netherlands where he graduated from the Willem de Kooning Academy has his roots in graffiti, creation and image making. His partner in the duo, Miel Krutzmann is also a graduate from the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, and is a mural painter and illustrator, who began drawing as a child and has since never stopped. As a pair, the two artists create hyper-realistic imagery in the form of life sized murals and facades on walls across the world.

They both met during their times at university in 2007 and Meil was already established as a graffiti artist, once the two had become acquainted and Telmo learned of the potential of being a muralist and using spray paint. Since then, the two have gone on to massive heights, having being featured in the One Day Festival in Antwerp and their project named Kiddies Art featuring Pieper’s drawings from when he was four years old being interpreted via his current level of detail.
