Amazing Palette Knife Cityscape Paintings


We don’t know much about artist Micko-Vic, but what we do know is that he has a collection of extremely stunning and expressive acrylic paintings that will instantly capture your attention. The artist’s style is a modern day form of cubism, in which he uses a special technique to create layer upon layer within each scene. He first sketches out the scene with pencil and brush, and then adds a combination of acrylic and impasto gel with a palette knife to get the final, textured effect. His work ranges from dimly lit city streets and cityscapes to lively and energetic portraits that won’t easily be forgotten.

The use of vibrant colors and bold blocks of paint create a striking image with lots of life and energy. Within each piece, the artist concentrates on a small palette of reds, oranges, and yellows, complemented with cool blues and greens. The final results are images that come alive before your eyes and playfully dance across the canvas. Micko-Vic is definitely one to watch, we can’t wait to see more of his work in the future.
