’Tiger Merch', by the Dutch designer Rop van Mierlo, plays with the idea of ‘artist merchandise’, the questionable concept of commercializing the work of artists after their passing. Van Mierlo finds it fascinating how the heartfelt and sincere work of artists, often driven by poverty, is put in stark contrast to the commercialization of their work after their passing. With 'Wild Animals’, he addresses this contrast and pokes fun at it, by creating his own merchandising while he is still alive and kicking.

The mugs come in an edition of 100, all numbered for authenticity. Each mug is one of kind, not one print is exactly the same. The mug comes in a numbered gift box.
