New Mural by Telmo Miel in Dordrecht, Holland & Final Days of ‘Lost and Not Found’


Thinkspace family artists Telmo Miel just completed another moving mural ‘Not As Creepy as I Seem’ in Dordrecht, Holland.  Here is the inspiration behind the piece in the artists’ own words.

“The picture we used as reference was from an old photo database, that had pictures of people in Dordrecht in the 1930-1940s. This particular girl we saw perfectly fitted this wall, and because of the fact the girl was from there we could not resist using it as a base for our concept.

By looking at those photo’s we realized the overall feel of photography drastically changed over the decades. Nowadays people use their phones or in luxurious circumstances they hire a photographer for family portraits. But the feel is usually happy, smiling, or with a duckface here and there. The database we went through was filled with serious people in a clothing style that referred more to modern day horror films than wholesome family life.

In every case, there is a kind of easily misinterpret-able factor ‘appearance’. She isn’t creepy though. Just like I’m not always angry, although I maybe appear to be.”

Make sure to check out their current exhibition at the Fullerton Museum Center ‘Lost and Not Found’ in its final days. The exhibition features a mural and a few original works by the artists closes November 27th.


Three Simultaneous Museum Exhibitions Now On View : Final Weeks

Thinkspace is currently involved in three major museum exhibitions, all of which are coming to an end soon, so we wanted to be sure and share a lil’ recap with you all. Full details on each show are below, along with links to purchase some of the original works featured in these landmark exhibitions for the New Contemporary Art Movement. 2016 has been an eventful year for our gallery, and it’s far from over yet. We still have our big show with the Brand Library and Arts Center in Glendale, California this November and SCOPE Miami Beach this December in Miami, Florida during Art Basel week, to look forward to.

2016 also marks our 11th year operating as a gallery, a year that saw us play host to 26 solo exhibitions // curate six major institutional-level exhibitions in Honolulu, Fullerton, Long Beach, Lancaster, and Glendale  // take part in major art fairs in Los Angeles, New York City and Miami // curate a 100+ artist group show in Chicago with our friends at Vertical Gallery // take part in building the foundation and permanent collection for the Urban Nation Museum in Berlin, Germany // produced numerous murals in Los Angeles and abroad // published numerous sold-out editions // placed hundreds of original works of art into new homes the world over // all in all, a very active and productive year for our gallery.

It will be sometime before we kick back and rest on our laurels here at Thinkspace. Too many are doing that these days or are simply tossing in the towel due to these new and more challenging times that gallery owners now face. By branching out of our white cube, we’ve kept things exciting and challenging for us, regularly providing new opportunities for our family of artists. With each new major museum exhibition we help to put together, there seems to be another door waiting to be opened and we will always be there to help push it open, ever ready to keep guiding our movement forward, pouring gas on the flames of opportunity and bringing the artists we support to new corners of the globe, all the while growing their patron base in the process.

Looking ahead to 2017, we already have four major museum exhibitions in the works, a curated show in Detroit with our friends at Inner State / 1xRun, two new artist monographs from Thinkspace Editions, a major event in the United Kingdom set to profile some of our most established artists & more that’s cooking we can’t share yet… all in tandem with our exciting exhibition program here at our gallery and our dynamic fair schedule. So much to look forward to, we can’t thank you enough for being along for this amazing adventure and for all your support over the years.

The Summer of Telmo Miel


Prolific artistic duo Telmo Miel has had a busy summer! They kicked off their season of murals at POW! WOW! Long Beach in conjunction with their piece for “Vitality in Verve in the Third Dimension” at the Long Beach Museum of Art. Before heading back over the Atlantic, Telmo Miel painted another fantastic mural piece at the Fullerton Museum Center for their mini exhibition “Lost and Not Found”. Once back in Europe, they hopped from country to country creating new pieces in 4 different countries from Italy to Norway. Absolutely killing it with 7 murals in 3 months, and  we don’t anticipate them slowing down.

Make sure to catch Telmo Miel’s exhibition “Lost and Not Found” at the Fullerton Museum Center in the Foyer Gallery before it closes next Saturday, September 24th.  Please visit the Thinkspace Gallery website from more information on Telmo Miel and view all available work from the artists here.
