We ship internationally from our studio in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Rop van Mierlo

Rop is an artist from The Netherlands.

He graduated from Design Academy Eindhoven in 2008.

After graduating, he made paintings, illustrations and self-published a few books.

He's collaborated with Marni, Hermès, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Head Porter and Stockmar.

He currently lives in Amsterdam.


How does Rop create his work?

Rop learnt to paint using a wet-on-wet technique during art class at primary school. As a graduate, he returned to this style as a way of painting animals where he had less control. This is how Rop's 'wild animals' came into existence.

What's a limited edition?

A selection of our products are produced in editions. This means we’ll only ever create a set number of that item.

What's an open edition?

Open editions are created without a set production run. While a limited edition will eventually sell out, an open edition will not.

Will my print be signed by Rop van Mierlo?

All of our print editions are signed by Rop in the bottom right corner on the front. Rop will also write the edition number on the front left hand side.
