Maaike Canne Daydreaming in Italy.

Maaike Canne Daydreaming in Italy.

Maaike Canne’s “Daydream”, as she calls it, is meant to evoke parallel worlds that you may live in simultaneously.

“Influenced by liminal spaces, architecture, and nature, this dreamlike mural is depicting the reality in between two worlds,” says the Dutch Painter here in Italy, “Worlds that live side-by-side, which feel familiar yet surreal at the same time.”

It’s the 8th year of murals and art installations here in the Molise Region for ACAG – Associazione Culturale Antonio Giordano. The curated festival brings many artists to work in public space – 40 this year – expanding stylistically before passersby with genres as diverse as figurative, abstract, Illusion Art (anamorphic, and Post Graffiti.

“We are excited to bring Dutch urban art to Molise by supporting the work of such an original, colorful and powerful creative mind,” – said Bas Ernst, a cultural attaché at the Dutch Embassy in Rome, which partnered with ACAG on the project.

Here in Santa Croce di Magliano, the new “Daydream” overlooks one of the busiest streets, itself instantly an integral part of the feeling of an open-air gallery here.
