About Rop van Mierlo

Rop van Mierlo, known for his wet-on-wet painting style, created a series of animals inspired by the idea of how people try to tame the world in any way they can. While searching for a way to illustrate these animals, he started thinking: "if I would draw a wild animal, I'd be trying to capture it in lines, but that's just another way to control and tame it."

Using his wet-on-wet painting technique, Rop van Mierlo's animal series is thus represented in amorphous and fuzzy shapes, yet these blobs are still easily recognizable as members of the animal kingdom — vibrant and untameable.

Misc Store supports
climate change solutions
& plants a tree for every order

Importing from countries as far as Japan & shipping worldwide has more of an impact than we would like.
That is why we plant a tree for every order + we plant an additional 2 trees each day.

Furthermore, we offset the individual carbon footprint of our staff, including travel per individual under 8,000 km by car or 2 short-haul return flights annually, by funding climate change solutions through Ecologi.

Investing in projects focused on carbon avoidance is not the same as simply buying carbon offset certificates, that is why we have chosen to work with Ecologi.
