This series of paintings called Rain Dance are reproductions of the recent rain inspired paintings of Viktor Mitic. The sequence is a kind of ''aleatory art'' in which natural rain is the constant painting partner of the artist as he creates mostly non-figurative works using the random effects of natural rain. There are remarkable results when he is working outside with his canvasses on the ground under the random effects of natural rain and thunderstorms during his painting processes. It is as if several senses are at work in the creation of these paintings. There are startling and beautiful effects from this inspired method of painting. In these canvasses there is a feeling of an almost lunar calm together with a muted immanence of solar violence in the segregated warmer colours in many of these paintings. This is an intense inner mythic-like world he has constructed that compliments and includes nature, where even acid rain, like smog sunsets, can add to the effects in the creation of paintings.

About the Author

Viktor Mitic was born in Belgrade, Serbia. A University of Toronto graduate artist, classically trained in art schools in Europe, Mitic has produced a major body of work that spans a career of over two decades. He has recently developed a distinctive, some would say provocative, method; he paints portraits of international iconic images and later shoots the outline of the figures using various weapons and live ammunition. He has had many successful solo and group shows of his paintings in Europe, the United States, Canada, and, most recently, Japan. Viktor Mitic lives in Toronto.
