Telmo Miel’s Murals Play with Distorted Perspectives

Dutch artist duo Telmo Pieper and Miel Krutzmann join forces as Telmo Miel, the moniker under which they've painted large-scale, surreal murals all over Europe. While well-versed in traditional figure painting, the artists distort and overlap their realistic renderings to create something dreamlike and surreal. They layer iterations of the same subject over one another in a way that evokes double-exposure photography. Telmo Miel's work, whether it contains something as morbid as an animal skull or pleasant as a beautiful human face, retains a quality of softness. The images drape over one another like sheer, silky fabrics, enveloping buildings in their dreamy haze.

Tristan Eaton (HF Vol. 34) is such a versatile painter, his collage-like murals often include a combination of typography, realistic portraiture, illustration, and patterns — all rendered freehand with spray paint. His ability to mix and match various styles within a single, cohesive image lends his work well to collaborations, like the ones he completed over the course of the past week with fellow street artists Cyrcle and How & Nosm in Brooklyn.
Having just come off their exhibition at Thinkspace Gallery in Los Angeles (covered here), Polish street art duo Sainer and Bezt, known as Etam Cru, recently completed their second major mural in the United States. Co-produced by Thinkspace and Branded Arts, their wall "Mr. Rooster" is a massive portrait of a young country boy with a rooster standing on his shoulders as he looks over the smoggy city of Los Angeles.
Grip Face’s graphical, object-based art has appeared in museums and galleries and on walls and everyday objects across the globe. The artist works with both familiar and abstract imagery in his pieces, which take notes from comic book art and whatever structure they’re painted on. Much of the work, event in its most unsettling alterations of its human subjects, is teeming with humor.
French pair Ella & Pitr once again tackle a topical social issue in their latest major mural. At more than 150 feet high, “Le Naufrage de Bienvenu (The Sinking of Welcome)” tells of a refugee seeking passage between the mountains on either side of Piney's dam in the Valley of the Gier in Loire. Ella & Pitr were last featured on HiFructose.com when they created the world's largest mural.
