Maaike Canne is like two Artists in one. Her illustrations all have this super thoughtful surreal quality to them, almost like there's a bigger riddle at play and each work is another clue. Yet her murals have this whimsical larger than life vibe that makes you feel like a small little kid tasting ice cream for the very first time.” -Nisha Btesh
