Michiel Folkers was born in 1982 in The Netherlands. In the late 90’s he began experimenting with graffiti in Amsterdam. As he got older, graffiti evolved into streetart and he started to experiment on canvas. Today, by using hand torn collected street posters, he is able to compose unique art on canvas captivating the viewer with the voice of the people and his own.
He replicates the captivating beauty of pop icons and people's portrait with his own street art style. As an emerging artist from The Netherlands, his collage works are always provided with posters he collects from the streets; he has developed the 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.
