Rop van Mierlo is a Dutch artist who started experimenting with painting animals using a wet on wet technique during his senior thesis at design school (well he actually started since he was a kid, read more on that here). he wanted to depict wild animals in an untameable way, and so Wild Animals was born.
I made them very quickly: on one night, in one take. They were really done on intuition. They had to be made quite fast before the paper dried. I’m not sure if I immediately saw how nice they were. You can’t really think; you just paint, and the paint bleeds everywhere, and before you know it, you’re finished. You put them away, they keep bleeding for a while, and the next day you see what you’ve made.
