Telmo Miel

Posted in art, street art with tags , on July 24, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Telmo Miel is a talented Dutch street art duo comprised of Telmo Pieper and Miel Krutzmann.


From the artist bio:
After [meeting at the Willem de Kooning] academy they moved to the Sober-Concept Store, where Sober-Industries (also academy-friends) just started their new studio and shop space. This is the spot where the company ‘TELMO MIEL’ became official in the beginning of October 2012.


Working together seamlessly, they both enjoy working in realistic styles. With loads of contrast in subjects. Technique and style have a high priority in the artwork of Telmo & Miel, true craftsmanship is what they want to produce.


They work separately on ideas for murals and come together with the sketches to see if combinations can be made. The result is usually very surrealistic, with attention to detail. They always work on the same piece together and are able to switch places when ever wanted or needed.


As the collaboration progressed between Telmo Miel and all the other creatives anchored at the Sober Store, the overall creative platform was named Sober Collective. A team & family of creatives that can support each other in any way necessary. Everyone with their own set of skills, so endless conceptual combinations were made possible.

WHY don’t more buses look like this? It’s such a missed opportunity NOT to paint giant teeth on all of them.

I’m sure this valid excuse resulted in instant exoneration:

Yeah, but the Wild Germ has anger issues…

One must look at the tagline and consider whether it is really the kind of attention ones wants.

What has she seen?

…Perhaps Karloff’s carload of arsenic?

If I ever get to space, I’m traveling via giant, helmet-clad intergalactic puppy.

A very touching piece of street art.

AS fellow fans of The IT Crowd know, two is the best number of eyes.


The sweet, pink title image is excellent with a cat that looks exceedingly unamused.

Isaac Cordal: Cement Eclipses

Cement Eclipses is a series of installations in Chiapas, Mexico, featuring tiny skeletons in reflective poses.


Often sharply dressed in the attire of the living, these little characters are contemplative, curious, melancholy…


They hide in tiny crevices, carrying their thoughts and wishes in the often ignored parts of everyday scenery.

NYCHOS creates incredible, exploding, expanding, madly deconstructed pieces of street art.


Like a recipe of classic Beauchene Skull’s in paint, anatomy textbooks and the bubbly, colorful stylings of lowbrow art…these murals must be a wonder to behold in person.

This particular piece drew me into Monsieur Qui’s street art portfolio:


I love his work with female faces…

Brains: it’s what’s for dinner.

And speaking of, who thought a grinning peanut grinding his own brain out onto a platter was…a great idea for a product? I envision a young Hannibal Lecter having a lovely time with this. Don’t get me wrong. I’d like one.

For the one time every few years that I need to physically remove a staple:

What actually happens when you have a toothache. Next time you are bothered, understand that it is just the worms, demons and ghosts acting up beneath your enamel.

Mid-century America presents NARCISSISM: THE DRESS.

I don’t. But I’ve heard the stories.

Ohhhhhh…so that’s how you get a man. You glue him down! I’ve been doing it wrong.

A real book; I kid you not:

When a man is asked what is perfectly irresistible I highly doubt “wool mantilla” is the first item that comes to mind (click picture to enlarge).
