Drew Nikonowicz (born in St. Louis Missouri, 1993) earned a BFA from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 2016. His work employs analog photography, computer simulations, Community-building, 3D printing, Raspberry Pi’s, open-source software, and more to explore our relationship to modern technology and its contributions to self-actualization.
He has exhibited nationally and internationally. In 2015 he received the Aperture Portfolio Prize and the Lenscratch Student Prize. In 2017 Nikonowicz completed a one-year residency at Fabrica Research Centre. His first photobook, This World and Others Like It, was co-published by Yoffy Press and FW:Books in 2019. It was awarded Jurors' Special Mention at the 2019 Paris Photo/Aperture Foundation Photobook Awards.
Drew can be found hanging out with folks in his Community Discord, making art in his studio, and live-streaming art & games on Twitch. He is currently pursuing an MFA at the University of Arkansas.
