“Micha’s images never actually confine themselves to one space. His surreal illustrations function like scenescapes within which we get to explore close-ups of tiny modular worlds and expansive reimagined realities at once.”
— The Verge
Micha Huigen is an illustrator currently based in Zwolle, the Netherlands. Dissecting and reassembling everyday objects into surreal machines, the artist’s style is marked by bold and elegant line work. Huigen has had several exhibitions for his solo work, and crafted artworks for album covers, music videos, magazines, and editorial publications. “I want my illustrations to make people look beyond what is usually perceived as mundane and ordinary. I want to challenge them to use their imagination. Even though I do work with certain themes and ideas in mind, my work allows for the onlooker to dive into my works and create their own reality,” he says.
