Michal Mitro is an artist and a researcher working across the field of disciplines and media. Trained in Psychology and Sociology, he focuses on the nuances of everyday life as well as hyperobjects of planetary scale. In his artistic practice he translates his sociological imagination into crafted sculptural environments with elements of sound, light or electricity. Themes that he gravitates towards explore relationships between human and more-than-human worlds and the supposed friction between natural and artificial. Mitro proposes narratives both affirming and disturbing in order to shape viable futures one may like to inhabit.
Michal exhibits and presents internationally, mostly in Europe. He is a laureate of this year's Oskar Cepan award, recepient of numerous grants and scholarships, curator at ssesi.space, certified electrician and a father of 5 year old Mateo.
