About Di Novak

  • Biography

    Architect and expressive therapy counselor by education, I have been creating art since my early days. I enjoy working with different media: paintings, photography, video art, fused glass.

    In my work I often use colors to induce emotional states, letting viewer explore his/hers own sentiment. When I make a painting I can tell a story about each little piece of it, and every detail means something. It just happens, I let the story reveal itself on the canvas spontaneously, and at the end it always suprizes me with new details that I wasn't aware of while I was painting.

    What amazes me even more is the abundance of new content and meaning that reveals in observers eye … the art has a life of its own, it is alive in most beautiful and endless way and it is a way of communication not only between me and you, but also between you and your deep inner self. I believe this is its highest purpose in our lives.

    Besides my own artwork, I am enthusiastic in assisting and encouraging other people to explore their own creative and personal potentials.
