My full name is Dominika Urban, but am better known as Niki. I graduated from College for Creative Studies (Detroit) in December 2012. I currently live in Austin, Texas.
My work focuses primarily on the dark side of the imagination; the part of one's mind that is often unexplored. I find sanctuary in imagery that many feel uncomfortable facing. The process of creation is the most important part for me; I become so focused that it feels as though I am taking a step outside of time. As a whole, my body of work is a collection of haunting images with some elements of surrealism. The subjects that are commonly looked at as mysterious or eerie, invoke me to delve into the unknown that few seek, and many wish to avoid.
