Toronto artist Viktor Mitic paints with bullets. According to a Toronto Sun story posted last Friday, the Serbian-born artist prepares his canvases in Toronto and then takes them to a Buffalo-area firing range to riddle them with bullet holes. The results, as in Mitic's portrait of Osama bin Laden above, have drawn plenty of attention. Subjects of Mitic's other target-practice portraits have included John Lennon, Ronald McDonald and Jesus.
