Oeno Gallery would like to congratulates artist Viktor Mitic for his new exhibition called On Point presented at the Art Gallery of Northumberland in Cobourg. 

With this new exhibition, Viktor Mitic is able to merge the whimsical and the profound, inviting viewers to experience a sense of childlike wonder while contemplating the mysteries of the universe.

Viktor Mitic uses a range of techniques, media, and references to create hallucinatory worlds filled with cartoon characters, and bright, often-anthropomorphic blobs. His works radiate dynamic and joyous bursts of color, form, and energy, but these saturated, seemingly playful shapes often conceal a darker edge, reflecting the dual nature of modern society. Mitic’s paintings are always reflective of his unique, self-generated visual universe, drawing from ideas and experiences extracted from the surrounding world. He successfully merges fine art with popular culture, drawing on the traditions of Pop Art, Abstract Expressionism, Surrealism, comic books, and street art.

His work serves as a reminder that even in the vastness of space, there is room for the familiar comfort of cartoon pop art and the limitless possibilities of artistic creativity.

Canadian artist Viktor Mitic, originally from Serbia, obtained his BFA from the University of Toronto in 1995 with art history studies at Sheridan College. Renowned for his post-Pop-inspired paintings, prints, and vibrant abstract sculptures, Mitic has showcased his creations at esteemed venues such as the Muramatsu Gallery in Tokyo, The Armory Show in NYC, Art Chicago, and in his hometown of Toronto. His work is held in corporate, private, and public collections including the noteworthy Beaverbrook Art Gallery and the Biggs Museum of American Art.

On Point exhibition will run from July 6 to August 31, 2024 with the opening reception on July 6.
