During the creation of the canvas, I was inspired by the Belarusian spring. It was the end of February, a time when a prolonged dark winter left the scene and it was time for early spring. Green chips symbolize the first grass on a background of winter snow. An additional meaning of the canvas is a time of change when black is replaced by white. A changing streak of luck in human life. Black contraction and depression in an instant changes to a bright awakening of the spirit, giving new hope.

Victor Aster is a contemporary Belarusian artist, creating abstract artworks in the author’s assemblage technique called `aster neoteric artefact`. Artist mixes a wide variety of industrial palette for self-expression: electronic waste, synthetic paint, impregnated fabric, rubber, metals, wood and other materials. Victor creates unique compositions based on the wreckage of civilization.

The author talks about his work: “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.
