Acrylics on canvas by Mikael Takacs

Mikael Takacs is a marbler born, raised and still based in Sweden.

He uses pipettes to distribute acrylic paint across the canvas to create his subjects, which he then distorts by dragging the paint around using various tools, like sticks and combs. He combines the classic abstract expression of marbling with concrete figures. This results in intricate patterns that forms his subjects. This technique has been around for hundreds of years, but in spite of that, his pieces are often mistaken for digital art. Check out this tumblr!
