Riassunto: ?Gustavo Novoa ? Paradise Revisited? is the compelling narrative of 50 years inside the evolving career of artist Gustavo Novoa, best known for having created a Utopian Jungle of his own in his many one-man shows in New York, Paris, Palm Beach, Beverly Hills, Santiago ? Chile, Caracas ? Venezuela, Spain, Switzerland, and so on? The Book has 120 photographs; some of personal interest, but mostly all full colored reproductions that date back to the early 60s? and his street paintings of Paris all the way to present day exhibitions. The book is in the form of a questionnaire. Author Brigitte Duvall-Kennedy writes the preface to every chapter in his life and asks the relevant question. But it is Novoa himself that leads you into his colorful life, adding his personal vision, humor and wit to describe the many roles one has to play when the spiritual and the mundane, the artistic flow and self-expression are intertwined. Novoa likes to think of himself as a Black Panther trapped in the body of a well-travelled painter. Over the years, Novoa has accumulated an impressive list of collectors whom include First Families Regan and bush, Royal Families Prince Charles of England and Victoria Eugenia of Spain, Hollywood ?royalty?: Hepburn and Stallone, as well as fashion icons such as Valentino, Versace, Halston, and Carolina Herrera.
L'autore: Chilean born Gustavo Novoa became represented exclusively by the Wally Findlay Galleries in the early 1970?s, and his one-man shows in New York, Paris, Palm Beach and Beverly Hills established him as a champion of ecology and wildlife preservation. His animals were primitive and painted in lush and colorful backgrounds. In 1977, the publication of his book ?Jungle Fables?, for which he both wrote the text and executed the paintings, was a collection of rhymes on ?Vice and Virtue? that gave a new dimension to his animals, making them more anthropomorphic and philosophical. Ringling Bros., Barnum & Bailey commissioned him to do the poster and the program for the circus that year. By 1981, Novoa?s paintings had changed again. His show, ?The Grand Tour? sent his felines prowling the major cities of the world. On April 3, 1988 Prince Charles of England set a new record for Novoa?s sales by auctioning one of his paintings at a benefit in Palm Beach. On April 26, 1991, Novoa was received at the White House by Mrs. George Bush. Miami?s Art Deco District had chosen his painting of the ?Carlyle Hotel? to be presented to the First Lady, the painting hangs in the President?s library. In 1997, Palette Publications of Miami, Florida, publishes ?Paradise Found?, a major retrospective art book that details Novoa?s colorful life and career. Another turning point in Novoa?s career was the exhibition ? Art from Art? that opened in March 1998 at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Santiago, Chile, with great success. His cats who started their pilgrimage in their native jungles with a naïve approach visited through the years many locations, including our major cities and the solar system. Novoa had eased his way into surrealism, finally landing with his show in the world of art. Using themes from other artists from Michelangelo to Picasso, but re-interpreted thru his felines, in November 2006, Novoa previewed the publication of his third book: ?Paradise Revisited?, with a one-man show of his most recent paintings at the Wally Findlay Gallery in New York?. ?Paradise Revisited? is a handsome 114 page biography and narrated career retrospective containing 130 color reproduction of his past and present work.
