Michiel Folkers

A Dutch artist born in 1982, Michiel Folkers starts his career with graffiti techniques. Along the years, by acquiring an artistic maturity, he begins to experiment with collage.

Following his meeting with artists Raymond Hains and Mimmo Rotella, Michiel Folkers decided to use collage with street posters as a basis for his new artwork series.

“When you paint with acrylic or oil, you go to an art supply store, you can think about which colours you are gonna use and combine.

The exciting part of my technique is that I have to use the colour combinations that the streets give me.”
