David Mikitka has always had an inherent talent and artistic spirit and while in high school, won a statewide competition with his sculpture. With years of evolving experimentation, David refined a technique and casting method that is unique in the artistic world. His sculptural style has been described as capturing “frozen chaos”. He works with aluminum, copper and steel, and at times incorporates natural locally sourced native items such as wood, fossil and stone. He uses scrap metals reclaimed through recycling and typically incorporates something found or personal to each piece that accents and exemplifies the beauty and personality of his subject.
David’s artistic inspiration occurs when he sees something unexpected, tragic or beautiful in an object, event or individual, often something within his circle of family and friends. He is an innately talented and uniquely capable artist whose style and vision brings a valuable and powerfully new dimension to the gallery.
