Description

Nik Mirus is a photographer based in Montreal, Canada. The subjects of Mirus’ commercial photography are often items that are new, luxurious and desirable, which he photographs against vibrantly coloured sets. The newest cosmetics and latest fashion trends are photographed in ways to entice viewers to buy them. In his personal work, however, Mirus tends to focus on the flip side of our consumerist culture and what is left behind in our pursuit of material interests. Mirus often finds inspiration in objects such as discarded packaging, old construction material and obsolete equipment. One Last Kick At The Can focuses on discarded paint cans that had piled up in his shared commercial studio. In one year of shooting advertising and fashion projects, it is not uncommon for a studio to accumulate hundreds of half-used cans, which ultimately make their way to a hazardous waste depot or landfill. By stripping off the label and removing the lid, Mirus uses the reflective surface of the can as a canvas on which he projects bold swaths of color. The result is a collection of colourful images that blur the line between photography and painting all while seeming to elevate the humble paint can to the status of a luxury good. As viewers, Mirus’ work prompts us to question the impact of our consumer cycle and at the same time appreciate the beauty in the mundane and banal objects that we generally discard when our use for them has passed.

 

10% of the proceed of each artwork sold will go to CPAWS. (Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society). It is a Canadian Charity with a long history of protecting public lands and water from development. Nik is a big fan of getting away from it all and into the bush. CPAWS mandate is to help keep Canada's wilderness wild and untouched for future generations to enjoy.
