Michiel Folkers a.k.a. Gieler (1982) started experimenting with graffiti in the late nineties. For years he remained active spraying letters. When he got older, and more mature and tired of the fights which are accompanied with this hobby, graffiti slowly evolved in street art. The friendlier and less illegal character of street art attracted Michiel above graffiti. Besides, working with stencils was a much better technique to get more details done better and faster. Michiel works in his studio in the centre of Amsterdam. In 2017 he started to work more often in different cities across the world, to use foreign posters in his art. His plan for the near future is to visit as much countries as possible, to capture the different street vibes on canvas.
