Wild Animals comprises a series of products and objects, based on the animal paintings of artist Rop van Mierlo. One of his most famous series 'Bench Players' is a series of 'failed', rejected or unused animals from Van Mierlo's archive; the reserve bench - or dugout - animals. The original works are painted in watercolour on paper and the prints are limited edition, all signed and numbered. Van Mierlo is intrigued by the human need to control nature. With an uncontrollable 'wet-on-wet' technique, he paints animals that are beyond his control.
The latest Wild Animals project is a series of wearable art, this time translated into knitwear. Proven to leave you in a good mood for the rest of the day, the funky and colourful knits will undoubtedly put a smile on your face.
Wild Animals knitwear will be available from this week in the store at Graanmarkt 13. In addition, the permanent collection, a large collection of wall prints and the 'Bench Players' items will be extensively available in the store.
