Art on Sunday! New work going LIVE tonight: four canvases from Jacqui Gibbs Chamberlain; two pop art works from street artist, Brad Novak, aka New Blood Pop; two prints from Fatu Feu’u; and a figurative lithograph from Grahame Sydney – the study for the painting previously listed on NZ artbroker, Dee.
Jacqui Gibbs Chamberlain
Jacqui is an artist of figurative subjects with life and energy. While Jacqui’s subject matter is invariably the human form, it is secondary to her exploring form, structure, movement, colour and texture. In her recent body of work, there is a translucent feel which gives the paintings a whole new interest.
Brad Novak (1976-)
Auckland born artist, Brad Novak, is an urban artist whose work bridges a space between fine art and street art. His work explore hand-collaged and stencil-spray-painted layering of pop culture imagery. He is looking specifically at the idea of celebrities worship from the ‘hyper-inflated world of American stardom’.
