There is no better way to live an original life than by doing what you truly love.

Miroslav Stibůrek, also known under his professional name Miroslavo, is a Czech artist, designer, inventor and entrepreneur. He was born in 1987 in the town of Benešov, Czech Republic. He currently resides and works in Barcelona, Spain.

His professional career as an industrial designer started in 2016 and 2017 when he won two product design awards given by the International Design Academy and the A’Design Award & Competition for his own independent projects. This elevated him into the spotlight and gave him a chance to be discovered by industry leaders as a talented industrial designer. Since then, he has collaborated with inventors, startups and large businesses to design and develop their new products to be launched on the market. He also designs and develops his own products through his own research and development lab. Besides product design, he continues to work in graphic and web design.

As an artist, he began his journey at the same time as his product designer journey. It was quite complimentary, as designing meant a lot of sketching so it was a step away from artistic expression. The first notebook he ever bought, it’s full of designs, inventions and artistic drawings. He began painting just before he moved to Barcelona. It’s there where he developed into the artist he is today. Starting in his apartment, where he held his first solo exhibition, all the way to street live painting performances shows at bars, restaurants, cultural spaces, and galleries. He has also been exhibiting in his home country, both collectively and individually. At the end of 2021, he held his first museum exhibition. He has been selling his art regularly since 2020 and his collectors are from different parts of the world.

Miroslavo has high hopes for the future of his career. As a designer and inventor, he would like to continue working with manufacturers, inventors and businesses as well as on his own inventions to realise his own innovative products. As an artist, he hopes to be able to exhibit his paintings in many places around the world and share his passion, love and dedication for the craft and artistry with other people.

If you were to describe Miroslav’s true nature, it’s that of the Renaissance man. A student of unquenchable curiosity with a feverishly inventive imagination. His thrive for knowledge, the exploration of all his abilities and boundless childlike creation is what makes him a man on a journey.
