About the Art
Walking My Dodo by Teis
A comical illustration of a skeleton walking his pet dodo.
Teis Albers is a photographer and visual artist from the Netherlands. The viewer keeps discovering new things in his intricate arrangements, with hidden details in every composition.

Everything comes together in a collage where he has full control over size, composition and color. The works are a mix of illustration, typography, photography and various compilation techniques. He finds inspiration in vintage stuff, street-art, flowers, old brochures, travelling, film, art, nature and music, lots of music. All of the artworks are made in an edition of 10 pieces. The degree of intervention in each work makes each piece unique. He attended the school for graphic design in Eindhoven and started doing freelance work right after graduation.
