Victor Aster is a modern Belarusian artist, designer, creating abstract paintings in the author’s technique called `aster neoteric canvas`. The artist uses non-standard materials for self-expression: electronic waste, steel plates and industrial chips. Victor Aster talks about his art:

“For me, art is not only a way of expression but also a specific artefact, which is a concentrated symbol of the era in which I live. I am inspired by the idea that the art objects that I created will tell people the history of our civilization. I use electronic waste, as this material most vividly reflects modern reality saturated with micro-chips. I am a person who creates objects from materials created by a robot. I ultimately transform e-waste into fine art. “

Focusing on the urban landscape and other similar themes, Victor breathes new life into old computer parts by shaping them into aesthetics. Artist crafts each assemblage using a variety of components, color palettes, and structural formations.

The artist creates most of the works in the form of flat plates or three-dimensional canvases from different types of metal. Electronic waste and other parts are fixed to the surface with rivets. We see interesting design elements: synthetic-impregnated fabric, elegant paint splash and various combinations of printed circuit boards, microchips and even plywood. The artist combines composition and absolute chaos.
