Maiko Posthumus

Brief artist summary:

Born in Indonesia, lived in Holland for a significant period of her life, and current resident of Spain, in the Axarquía region of Málaga.

Maiko lives in Daimalos (Arenas), where she enjoys the Axarquian landscapes and climate, and spending time with the locals. She aspires to make people happy with her art and wants it to be accessible to everyone. Maiko’s home is open to whoever would like to visit her gallery and workshop.

In her works, which she enjoys displaying outdoors, we can see different styles, from realism to abstract, although her favorite style seems to be stylized realism. Maiko is self-taught, although she has participated in various courses, such as clay sculpture with artist Luis Mugar in Vélez-Málaga and glass fusion with Jan van Pelt in Eindhoven (Holland).
