Nikola Mišel is a multidisciplinary artist and designer based in Croatia.
He had a dozen group exhibitions as well as four solo exhibitions. His work was also published several times in the Estonian magazine Semiouculus (Estonia) as well as in Volumes of Darkness, an artist book published by Bruxelles Art Vue (Belgium). In 2020 he has won the Rector’s Award for the best student project. In 2021 and 2022 he was one of the finalists of Zagreb Design Week. In 2022 his work was shown as a part of the 7th Graphic Art Biennial of Szeklerland in Romania as well as in Serbia as a part of the international student biennial Zero tolerance for violence against women.
He has been active in graphic design, illustration, drawing, and painting since 2011 and has been experimenting with photography and digital arts for the last few years.
The goal behind his work is to create something seemingly fictional, but based on real-life events that are seen differently, in a more personal way. Nikola’s work doesn’t necessarily show reality, but the new ways of looking at it and his goal is to make the viewer think about it, question it, and induce their emotions.
Since 2022 he's been a member of the Croatian Designers Society.
Some of his work is part of the Covasna County Cultural Center collection.
