Rop van Mierlo is an illustrator and artist living in Amsterdam. He studied at Design Academy Eindhoven and graduated cum laude in 2008. Van Mierlo works with various mediums but starts his process mostly with drawing or painting. Control – or the absence of it – is an important part of his work.
He is best known for his picture book ‘Wild Animals’, which won a Dutch Design Award in 2011. Van Mierlo is intrigued by the human need to control nature. Using a wet-on-wet technique, he paints animals that he can’t control.
