Nikola Mišel Puklin 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, 2022 and 2023 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. In 2023 his work was shown as a part of The Exhibition of Croatian Design 21/22.
His design work is greatly influenced by Swiss and Bauhaus design with main focus on typography. The goal behind his artistic 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.
He has been active in graphic design, illustration, drawing, and painting since 2011. Since 2017 he is active in photography and digital arts and has been experimenting with motion design for the last two years.
Since 2022 he's been a member of the Croatian Designers Association (HDD).
Some of his work is part of the Covasna County Cultural Center collection.
