"I have been a painter at a great time and in a great place. I am lucky to be able to make work and have it be seen just as quickly."
New York-based artist David Novros is being celebrated in an expansive exhibition in Germany’s Museum Wiesbaden this fall.
Raised by parents who were both artists, Novros began painting at an early age. But is wasn’t until, in his words “1970 that I was able to begin my work as a fresco muralist. Artist and dear friend, Don Judd generously asked me to make a fresco in his place at 101 Spring Street — just around the corner from my studio. Since that time, I have tried to make wall paintings wherever possible.”
Inspired by artists Barnett Newman and Marc Rothko, his work is also strongly influenced by Indian and Byzantine ceramics. Along with artists Brice Marden and Robert Mangold, Novros is celebrated as one of the most important contemporary artists today.
Opening on Sept 12, 2013, the renowned Museum Wiesbaden is showing a collection of David Novros’ famed artworks.
