Series of Artist Introductions ~ Meet Gustavo Novoa

By
Home Stager with Innovative Artistry

I have been publishing a series of introductions on the Artists that I have been so proud to have had the experience of working with....I hope you have enjoyed their work as much as I have & I feel Art is so important to our lives & of "Staging" our environments ~ homes, commercial properties, offices, vacation destinations, or vessels.

Gustavo Novoa is my next introduction. Many of Gustavo's works are of a serene setting of jungle wildlife.  The details & colors amazing & soothing, IMHO, but you will see below that I am not the only one that feels this way! :)

Greg & I printed & initiated the following Limited Editions Series for Gustavo during our ownership of Kaleidoscope Images. Gustavo is a wonderfully talented Artist of which his pieces leave you with an indescribable comfort after viewing. Gustavo has a long list of collectors, which you may recognize Mr. Sylvester Stallone, Mr. & Mrs. Oliver Stone, Mr. & Mrs. Firestone Jr. & well as a number of royals amongst the list.  This is a layout that I printed for him during our time together as a promotional piece.

 Gustavo's Bio

"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."

I am sure that you will enjoy his journey as much as I have, and be inspired by his works.  If you visit or contact him, please let him know I said hello :)  You may also find a further Bio by clicking on the link for Walter Findlay Galleries.

Dear Dick - Thank you so much for visiting! :)  I was truly wonderful to have worked with him (& all of the Artist featured)  & glad that I can bring part of my past to be of interest in the future...as Rebekah Radice would say "Pieces of the Puzzle" of my life....or I used to have on my website "connecting the dots".  It brought a smile that you called him "Sr. Novoa" :).  Any chance you have met him during these viewings?  :)  Thank you for taking the time to visit!

Pam,

Thanks for introducing me to Gustavo Novoa. His work is beautiful! I shared the information with my daughter, who is an artist. She was pleased to receive it this morning.

Dear Sheila - I am so happy that you enjoyed.  I have always felt the caring he feels to nature & the peaceful spirit he shares on canvas & in person....and as a bonus, his colors are very desirable :).  Thank you so much for visiting!

Dear Patricia - I was so happy to share!!  We have something in common my daughter is also an artist.  I am not sure if you wish to forward the others, but I have a few blogs along with Gustavo's I have so far Peter Von Artens & Karl Merklein as painters & then Helen Morse & Alan Maltz?  In fact, a few artists in the family, but have not reached the levels of the ones I have posted thus far.  It takes time & a full time dedication.  I feel each one of their stories are unique....as unique as their personalities & each one is so incredibly talented.  Thank you for visiting!  I will try in the morning to get the links as they have been over the past two months...but there have been 3 or 4 of the other artists & may be she would be interested?

Thanks so much again & I will come by in the morning to visit you both.  I just got in from a bit of a day. heart

Dear David - Thank you & I am glad...I just hoped it would be something others may enjoy & we do use Art as a considerable part of staging & accessories.
