Captivated by the colour, form, and pattern of paint splatterings in his Toronto studio, artist Viktor Mitic re-imagined them as compelling abstract sculptures. Minor Meteor was created from photos and sketchings he made of the paint marks manipulated on a computer. The brilliant colours—turquoise, hot pink, and lime green accented by 24 kt. gold plate are thoroughly modern.
“I would go back and forth between paper and computer and at one point I would paint them in vibrant contrasting colors. I would look for something in color and in shapes that would make the whole structure dynamic and live.” Viktor Mitic
