Mikołaj Stojanowicz (b.1998) is a Polish-born multidisciplinary artist based in Rotterdam. 

Born into the colorless landscape of soviet apartment flats and raised by the internet and video games, Miko’s work portrays the world of dreams and liminality.

In this culture of fleeting attention span, he designs his work to instantly capture the viewer’s gaze, using as little visual data as he can. High contrast, lack of smoothness or shade; his stories are told in paintings, murals, and computer graphics.
