About the artist
Brad Novak (aka New Blood Pop) is a NZ-based urban pop artist who wants us to “keep our inner child alive”.
Novak 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).
This practice of Novaks is under one of his main themes 'The Digital Dilemma'- in the artists own words:
"This increasingly technological age hasn’t made us any happier, or connected us more deeply, rather it’s been doing the exact opposite!"
This led into further commentary:
“A few years ago I started a series centred around the concept of the Shadow Life. I’ve been developing a theory that many of us (myself included) have been living these shadow lives, distracted by tech, avoiding our very human emotions, lacking compassion for ourselves and others. These works are about signalling that shallowness… that untapped potential. What could we become if we embraced our authentic inner self?
Fast forward to 2020, the pandemic is in full swing, and I believe these pieces are increasingly relevant. Not because they are Covid-inspired (they aren’t), but because they hint at a universal truth that the pandemic is making even more obvious...
...We all have limited time - Let’s not waste it!”
Novak currently shows internationally with galleries in the USA, Canada, UK and NZ.
