About the Artist:
Micha Huigen is an illustrator from the Netherlands. He graduated from art school in Zwolle in 2018. He has an immersive style and recognizable use of color. The way the illustrations are composed make the viewer feel like they could wander around in them and discover things hidden in corners and crevices. Just one glance is not enough to see it all. And that’s exactly what he wants. Micha thinks it’s very important for people to stay curious.
He makes personal work as well as commissioned works that vary from album covers, gig posters and T-shirt designs to editorial illustrations.
