Enköping, Sweden based Mikael Takacs 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.

Takacs combines the classic abstract expression of marbling with concrete figures. He prefers to blur the lines and to present an abstract artwork. According to him, abstract art makes the dialogue between the viewer and the piece of art more interesting. This results in intricate patterns that forms his subjects.
