Ivo Nikić (born in 1974 in Pristina, now Kosovo), is a Polish-Kosovan multidisciplinary artist; his work includes painting, photography, installations, objects, video, and actions in urban space.
Ivo experiments with connotations and undertones, dismantles the world into its basic elements, questions preconceived solutions, and reevaluates the categories of beauty and ugliness.
He combines elements of old masters (Hironimus Bosch, Rembrandt) with modern art such as Cy Twombly’s scribbles, mixes street art and the idea of samples identified with hip-hop music, and adds a pinch of humor to it all.
In 2003 he graduated in painting from the Warsaw Academy of Fine Arts, PL in the studio of Prof. Jaroslaw Modzelewski. Since then he has been an active and prolific artist. In 2006 he was an artist-in-residence fellow in Bern, Switzerland.
