About Michels Corporation
The Art

German artist H.D.Tylle captures scenes in workplaces that few artists, or members of the general public, for that matter have visited. He has immortalized factory scenes and individual laborers, underscoring the importance of America’s shrinking industrial base. "Michels Corporation was introduced to Tylle by Kondex Corporation in Lomira,”said Tim Michels, owner and vice president of Michels Corporation. “After viewing Tylle’s work, it was obvious that he had a great talent for capturing “people at work”.  We believed that having him paint some of our job sites and people would be a fabulous way to memorialize and highlight Michels’ work. Most importantly, he showcases the hard working people of Michels Corporation by bringing them to life in his paintings,” Michels said. Tylle has said that he hopes, through his art, to reach people who are involved in art but don’t know about working circumstances, and people working in factories who are normally not involved in art.
