Miha Štrukelj is a visual artist working primarily in painting and also focusing on drawing and site-specific work for the last two years. He explores the mechanism of perception and (de-)construction of images, examining the position of individuals in urban landscapes and how built environment defines their existence. He has recently received three awards–a grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation 2008-09,[1] the Henkel Drawing Award 2008 and the working scholarship of the Slovenian Ministry of Culture. This year his work has also been included in the National Collection of the Museum of Modern Art[2] in Ljubljana. He has also been selected for “Slovenian Art 1995–2005” and “Seven Sins; Ljubljana–Moscow” at Museum of Modern Art Ljubljana, and various other national and international selections. His work has been presented in “Vitamin P; New Perspectives in Painting”[3] by Phaidon Press. He is currently artist-in-residence at ISCP in New York.

Štrukelj is representing Slovenia at the Venice Biennial 2009.
