Dream Together by Michiel Folkers, Netherlands

This original 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 that 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.

Michiel Folkers, was born in 1982 in The Netherlands. In the late 90’s he began experimenting with graffiti in Amsterdam. For years, he remained active with spraying letters on walls and as he got older, graffiti evolved in streetart and he also started to experiment on canvas. His street influences can still be recognized and by using hand torn collected street posters, he is able to compose unique images on canvas captivating the viewer with the voice of the people and his own.

Blending urban elements in a highly intricate way, he creates compositions that differentiate him from his counterparts. Since 2014 he has been diligently creating this body of work by replicating the captivating beauty of pop icons with his own style.

As an emerging artist from The Netherlands, his collage works are always being provided with posters he collects from walls out of the streets; he has developed a technique of ”Sustainable art” which gives a living and edgy character to his paintings. He also uses other old materials, like damaged brushes, blunt stanleyknives or other older and sometimes broken tools. Since by working with these tools and materials the result is always more surprising and exciting.

Michiel Folkers has been featured at The Robert Kidd Gallery (USA); Reload Gallery (UK); Art Southhampton (USA); Lilac gallery NYC (USA)  Size: 31.5 x 47.24
