Paintings by British/Australian artist BARRY NOVIS hang in the homes and offices of celebrity and corporate collectors all over the world.
Born in Brighton UK, and living in ‘swinging’ London during the 1960s/70s heyday of modern pop culture, imprinted on him a passion for music, sport, art and individualistic expression. From the start, Novis paintings were always larger-than-life, featuring bold strokes or multiple dots in acrylic or oil on canvas. His first ever rock legends painting, ‘George Harrison’, fetched a significant sum at a music industry auction in London, and soon after collectors of his art included Coldplay, Joanna Lumley, HMV Music, Hit and Run Music, and the National Trust UK.
These days, although still passionate about painting the legends he is best known for, he includes figurative and abstract in his repertoire, often inspired by dreams and meditations.
Barry Novis now lives in Noosa on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast but still provides his art to collectors worldwide.
