About The Mural
The mural depicts a woman’s head on a body of man who is slightly overweight and a dog walking on the side. It is the artists’ interpretation on the current events and stressing the fact that we may have different religions, different languages, different sizes, different colors, but from the inside we’re all the same.
“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.” – Nelson Mandela
About The Artists
Telmo Pieper and Miel Krutzmann aka TelmoMiel is a dutch duo artists from Rotterdam who consider themselves muralists and creators of contemporary art.
They met in 2007 with Telmo, a licensed illustrator and designer, and Miel, who was already active in the graffiti scene. The official start of the collaboration will, however, be dated later in 2012, after both had completed the Academy of Art.
The two artists work with a photo-realistic style with lots of contrasts. 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.
