Dealers

In this remarkable portrait-survey of 36 of Toronto’s most distinctive and influential art dealers, artist Viktor Mitic has captured and illuminated the unique individual personalities of his subjects. Depicting by turns their passion, insouciance, vivacity, shrewdness, eccentricity, and geniality, these portraits successfully reflect the rainbow of human emotion and expression. This collection of paintings turns the tables on the behind-the-scenes figures of the Canadian art world, and serves both as a keepsake of the corresponding exhibit that was held in the Odon Wagner Gallery in 2009 and as an widely-appealing visual study of men and women as their everyday selves by an internationally-accomplished artist.
