Michiel Folkers – Bear 028
This original teddy bear artwork is made with second hand teddy bear and ink. The bear is dipped in different types of ink and printed on cardboard, or in this case paper. The result is comparable to the screen printing technique, in a sense more figurative and some parts more abstract. Max 6 prints can be made of each bear, yet all different and unique.
Technique: unique bear print on 300 grams of high quality paper.
With a certificate of authenticity by the artist.
Michiel Folkers is a mixed media artist living and working in Amsterdam. His work is spread all over the world and he exhibits in galleries from Zurich to New York. He is best known for his layered paintings, large canvases in which he combines colourful street posters with aerosol and acrylic paint. He “picks” and collects these street posters for each individual artwork himself and uses them as the basis for all his pieces. On top of these layers he paints, screen prints or pastes recognizable themes (often still digitally edited) like that of cartoons or celebs, but he also regularly goes the abstract way. It is important that the background does not disappear, but rather becomes entangled in the subject. Each piece is unique and looks like a piece of street wall that you definitely want to hang in your house.
