Twee Muizen is a duo; Denis and Cris. Denis studied fine arts and Cris fashion design. They got together, they fell in love and working in a Dutch warehouse they decided that it was best to make dolls and change that corporate store for a smaller one but with more life. They went back to Galicia and brought the name with them, “Twee Muizen”, which in Dutch means two mice. Two mice that treat each doll as if it were a sculpture, an artistic object. Thus, each doll you buy will be a unique piece, designed, drawn, cut, sewn and sent by Cris and Denis. Both are from Galicia and were raised in villages near Santiago de Compostela, towns with lots of mountains, animals and nature, and this is something that can be seen in their work.
They currently live and work in Barcelona and their studio is located in the neighborhood of Sant Pere. In addition to the workshop they also have a part of the gallery where they show their latest pieces, both art toys and illustration and paintings.
Twee Muizen were the winners of the Leopoldo Alas Clarín contest of the 2017 edition of the Parees festival and will show their work.
