About Blazing Blue

Viktor Mitic’s ‘Blazing Blue’ is part of a series of pop art paintings that illustrates life at the beach. The predominantly royal blue beach scene shows people clad in shorts walking on the golden-coloured sand, turquoise waters in the background. In this piece, the Serbian-born artist is playing with light, shadow and negative spaces. Figures and objects appear in silhouette, a deliberate play on the viewer’s perception.

“This painting is about people and movement and contrasts but they are not the focus. Your perception is.” Viktor Mitic

He earned a BFA from the University of Toronto in 1995 with studies in art history at Sheridan College. He has exhibited his post-Pop inspired paintings, prints and colourful abstract sculptures at the Muramatsu Gallery in Tokyo, The Armory Show in NYC, Art Chicago and in Toronto. His work is held in corporate, private, and public collections.
