For an artist, exposure to visual art is always intensive. For them, art isn’t about pretty things; it’s about who they are, what happens to their imaginary world, and how their lives get affected. Being An Artist series adores the intensive spirit of such artists. Therefore, in this post, PrintShop by Designhill presents the inspiring journey of an artist hailing from North Macedonia (Southeast Europe), Nikola Tikoski whose love for visual arts has got no limits.
Nikola describes himself as an artistic soul who is aiming to reach the top of the world through his artwork. Since childhood, creating beautiful art has been his passion.
Whenever he gets inspired by any artwork, he prefers to create it from scratch in his own style. While creating, he always summoned the uniqueness and creativity to tune it into his personalized form.
Today, he has been sharing his unique artwork with millions of people on the creative platform, PrintShop.

Asking About His Artistic Journey And His Love For Visual Arts, He Says:
“I’m an artist, born and raised in North Macedonia, which is officially the Republic of North Macedonia, a country in the Balkan Peninsula in Southeast Europe. Talking about my artistic journey, graphic design is my passion. Uniqueness and Creativity are my trademarks. Since childhood, I have been very fond of art. It has always been my escape boat and my passion to move forward and enter a better world. I always dreamt of myself as an artist who believed in my artistic soul aiming to reach the sky through valuable creations. I always believed that art is the only way to share your inner thoughts and imagination without uttering a word to it. Whenever I feel like sharing something with the outside world, I start making my designs from scratch. Now, I’m creating and selling my various forms of artwork on many different platforms. And, I’m loving it!”
PrintShop: What’s your process of creating a piece of artwork and what tools and techniques do you use?
Nikola: It is very simple, I try to see things beyond what they are. I imagine them into something different. This approach helps me to create my unique designs. It helps to deliver full satisfaction.
PrintShop: How do you find inspiration and stay creative?
Nikola: I find inspiration in everyday life, in everything that surrounds us. But mostly I find inspiration in the depths of my imagination – my own imaginary world.
PrintShop: Did you face any challenges in your artistic journey? If yes, How did you overcome it?
Nikola: Everyone faces challenges, that’s what helps us to grow and improve. Mostly I have faced challenges when I did not believe in myself and my passion to create art. I tried hard to overcome it. And, I believe, once you overcome yourself there is nothing that can stand on your way.
PrintShop: What is the best advice you’ve gotten as an artist or the most important thing you’ve learned?
Nikola: Be what you are, people will recognize you because of your uniqueness.
