"Stretching and distorting reality." Mio.

Contemporary artist from the heart of Europe. Each motive is hand-drawn from my imagination which is extremely important to me. This approach forced me to create my own, personal style based on many years of experience in drawing and the study of anatomy and arts & crafts. There is a story behind every motive which sarcastically points to a current issue in our society.

Get art

When you... get art. So, get art.


What is lithography? A very special and old technique which requires the artist to draw directly on a stone block using ink.

Mio (Ondrej Michalek  * 31. 03. 1993) is an artist, painter and draftsman. The main subject of his work are large-scale paintings on a canvas or board. His style is very illustrative and is in many ways influenced by comic books, Pop Art, Street Art, movie posters, Art Nouveau and classical drawings.


Each motive focuses on a specific topic, mostly current events, various moods or the behavior of our society. The main topic stays hidden behind a flashy marketing-like image and is presented in a satiric or even sarcastic way.


The most important element of Mio’s work is drawing. He is constantly working on improving his highly personalized style by studying drawing techniques and figurative anatomy. Mio doesn’t use references – he draws people and objects directly from his imagination and pays special attention to perspective and foreshortening. He believes that the limitations of a 2D canvas are actually an advantage and breaking through the 2D space into perspective can really pull the viewer inside of the story he is trying to tell. 


Mio’s paintings are currently in private collections across Europe, regularly exhibited in galleries and during various events. In the past he collaborated with brands like Albi, Albatros, Harley Davidson or SKODA.

Current exhibitions (2023):

My Mythology - Bite&Byte, Plynárenská 3E,

20. 4. - 30. 5. 2023, Bratislava
