Vasa Mihich


Vasa Mihich is a renowned Los Angeles-based artist known for his sleek, colorful, and captivating acrylic sculptures. He was a Senior Professor of Design at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) where taught color theory for many years. For nearly 50 years he has been working in acrylics, whether on canvas or through sculpture.   

His sculptures, with their vibrantly colorful geometric planes suspended in acrylic, are dynamic and endlessly fascinating. Caviar20 is excited to be offering this fantastic desktop sculpture realized in an atypical form and color. 

“Tangerine Slice” features Vasa's signature, tropical palette of tangerine/apricot contrasted with a base of emerald and aqua. The smooth, hemispherical curve hosts the trio of complementary colors, gently contracting and expanding each shade when viewed from various angles.

This minimalist sculpture is a paradigm of Mihich’s ongoing investigations of light, color, and negative space. These key optical characteristics are present throughout his oeuvre. Vasa's career developed in tandem with the Los Angeles Light and Space movement. In sculptures such as this one we see the connection to artists such as Fred Eversley and De Wain Valentine. 

After dedicating years of his career to education, Mihich now commits himself fully to his studio in Los Angeles where he continues to push the potential of sculpture with the acrylic medium.
