Mihailo S. Petrov (1902 – 1983, Belgrade), was a graphic artist, painter, illustrator, poet and critic, professor, book and poster designer and typographer.

He studied painting in art school in Belgrade during 1919 – 1921 with prof. Lj Ivanovic and M. Milovanovic, and continued in Vienna (1922), in Cracow (1923), and in Paris (1924 -1925). Thanks to mediation by Stanislav Vinaver who was in Belgrade collecting contributions for Zenit, Petrov became one of Zenir's most active collaborators during its first phase (1921), as well as a collaborator with other avant-garde magazines like Dada Tank and Ut.
