This original 2018 artwork by Brad Novak titled 'Poet 1.4' features a young John Lennon portrayed with cross arms, produced in various techniques including hand-paper-collage, acrylic, and spray paint on boxed wooden board. One of a kind original artwork signed and dated by artist.
A striking piece from Novak's 'Sound Organised in Time' series that showcases creative individuals. These legends were innovators, their music defining generations. Through their craft they have challenged, shocked, and of course brought enjoyment to millions. Musicians are the ultimate icons of popular culture – are there more recognizable or revered humans than Mick Jagger, John Lennon or David Bowie?
Size: 790 x 590mm.
Brad Novak (aka New Blood Pop) is a NZ-based urban pop artist who wants us to “keep our inner child alive”. He is the first artist in New Zealand’s history to exhibit with global superstars such as Warhol, Haring, Lichtenstein, Mr. Brainwash and BANKSY (Toronto, 2015).
His art practice covers two main themes. The first is the subjective nature of identity - which relates to the flawed human tendency to label each other, and ourselves, and thereby limit our potential. Novak rejects this through his ongoing endeavours to combine dual careers as not only a professional artist but also a medical doctor. The second deals with what he calls 'The Digital Dilemma' - in the artist's own words...
"This increasingly technological age isn't making us any happier or connecting us to others better, rather it’s doing the exact opposite!"
Novak currently shows internationally with galleries in the USA, Canada, UK and NZ. He is working towards solo shows in the UK in 2020 and USA in 2021.
