Tea Ceremony Giclee Art Print

Maaike Canne is an illustrator and artist living and working in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

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.

Some background information on this work:
The father of the modern way of tea was Sen no Rikyu (1522-1591) who advocated an austere, rustic simplicity. Although its origins lie in Chinese Zen ritual, over centuries the ceremony developed into a distinct Japanese form combining native culture, including art, flower arranging, and haute cuisine. 
It’s a ceremonial way of preparing and drinking green tea (Matcha) typically in a traditional tea room with tatami floor. The ceremony is to form a bond between host and guest that demonstrates the spirit of generosity and respect in an atmosphere distinct from the fast pace of everyday life.
