Like the stripes on a beach umbrella, fun, fresh rainbow colours are layered in contrasting ‘waves’ in this delightful pop art painting by Serbian-born artist, Viktor Mitic. This is one in a series of seaside-themed paintings that share the same approach to colour and form as Mitic’s recent playful outdoor sculptures. The Graffitti Study collection is painted on archival paper which is highly durable and acid-free.
“Usually you see these colour field sets done in hard edges. I used graffiti spray paint to create a soft edge that would drop and crack and be uneven and fun.” Viktor Mitic
