The foundation of his practice is based on contemporary art considering variety of discipline and styles, such as:
Abstract expressionism , Surrealism , Cubism , Impressionism etc , as well taking note of a modern and post - modern preoccupation as a thoughts in his thinking processes.

The spontaneity and the formalism of abstract expressionism, the dream - imaginative approach of surrealism, the structural thinking of Cubism and the powerful colors of impressionism it enables him to express and interpret his complex idea of association in his work.

In reference to his teaching , Mishko is very supportive to his students by letting them to discover their own creative potential, stimulates student confidence in their art making, and provide platform for student evaluative reflection on their own work and the work of others.
