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.

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 streetart. The friendlier en less illegal character of streetart attracted Michiel above graffiti. Besides, working with stencils was a much better technique to get more details done better and faster.
