We are the Tinker Brothers, stencil artists currently based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Back in 2012, we decided to quit our jobs and drop out of university to follow our dreams. Hitting rock bottom and having to live at our parents house we spend the next five years experimenting with different media and techniques - ultimately leading to our signature style of stencilled pieces of black and invisible words on white canvases and iconic cartoons using 24-carat gold leaf.
In making art we either take on the role of a rebel revolting against established ideas and authority, a joker speaking of utter nonsense, or a poet writing love letters to life. We feel very strongly that art serves a higher purpose than entertainment and investment alone. Art can be a powerful force capable of inspiring hope and truth in people’s lives. Now, more than ever the world could use a wake-up call. We need to break free from our self-limiting thoughts and reconnect to our highest selves; to nature, to love.
We believe that our art has the potential to serve as rocket fuel for dreamers and inspire the seed of enlightenment every human being carries within to sprout.
