The Artel is an Auckland/Amsterdam based Art Department for Film and Television. We offer a wide range of services, including Production Design, Art Direction, Set Dressing, Prop Mastering, Scenic Painting, Custom Prop Construction and Art Assistance. With our broad set of peculiar skills, we excel in making tangible the most seemingly impossible concepts imagined by ambitious creatives. 


Thomas Hamming (a.k.a. Space Oddity) and Hayley Lovelock (a.k.a. Flea Pit), joined forces and combined expertise to form The Artel. With over 100 commercials and six years in the industry as an Art Director, Utrecht born Thomas has refined his natural ability to creatively solve unanticipated logistical nightmares under pressure. No challenge is too big for his undertaking. With one Bachelors degree in Film and another in Fine Art under her belt, Auckland born Hayley has an eye for composition and is a master of materials. To set, they bring experience, expertise, a custom talented crew and some good, fucking fun.
