  • About the work

Oil On Canvas

A stack of vintage letters, stamped and worn by time are rendered in a skillful realism by Ciba Karisik. In an age of digital communication, the hand-written letter 'scripsit' or 'written by' and sent round the world reminds us of how much has changed. In addition to his use of a skillful trompe l'oeil (fool the eye) technique, the artist has heightened the importance of the subject through compositional chiaroscuro, strong tonal contrasts between light an dark. This painting is unframed.


About the Artists

Ciba Karisik completed a Bachelor and Master's degrees in painting in 1985 at the Sarajevo Academy of Fine Art. The grandson of two artists, Karisik became an established artist working in the trompe l'oeil, high realist style. In 1992, he immigrated to Canada where he continued his career. Since then, he has produced a significant body of work and exhibited regularly in solo and group exhibitions. His paintings are held in private and corporate collections in Canada, the US, England and Europe.
