A new exhibition displaying the work of renowned urban Pop artist Brad Novak (aka New Blood Pop) opens in the Bread & Butter Gallery in Whitianga on Sept 23rd through to 8th Oct 2017.

Meet Brad Novak 23rd Sept from 12pm - 4pm at Bread & Butter Gallery, 26 Albert Street, Whitianga.

Brad Novak aka New Blood Pop is one of New Zealand’s up and coming urban pop artists who has already made waves nationally and internationally. His collection of mixed media paintings are exhibited and available from Bread & Butter Gallery, Whitianga from 23rd Sept to 8th Oct 2017.

Novak’s upcoming solo show with Bread and Butter Gallery sees him return to one of his key themes (‘the cult of celebrity’), this time 16 new works present a distinctly vintage twist.

Well known for utilising popular culture, specifically the depiction of celebrities from the hyper-inflated world of American stardom (think Liz Taylor and Judy Garland). The artist steps us back in time (or is it the future?) with his ‘Interstellar Glamour’.

Icons such as Brigitte Bardot, Sophia Loren and Twiggy inhabit his creations. Their iconography underpinned by the use of repetitive images of fellow superstars, such as Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe.

In keeping with his current practice, several works also juxtapose against backgrounds of contrasting imagery - science fiction heroes, comic book characters and cultural icons feature prominently.

All of the works depict people shedding tears formed from computer circuitry, or looking at the world through a technological ‘lens’. Our ever increasing love affair with technology has definite tradeoffs.
Perhaps his most cohesive body of work to date, ‘Interstellar Glamour’ epitomises the artist’s fascination with pop culture, cinema and juxtaposition.
