It is rarely a challenge if you are of the creative mind to find your inspiration. “I find my inspiration everywhere, all the time,” states Andrew Novick, “ There is not enough time in the day to capture or document everything I’m inspired by.”
Andrew Novick has been an important and constant pulse in Denver’s creative and artistic scene and was recently voted one of Westword’s 100 Colorado Creatives.
“I’m very social and I am a self-promoter,” states Andrew with a smile that is reminisent of a half smile, half surprise wide eyed look.
“A shy person may have a disadvantage because I feel that people aren’t necessarily seeking out cool art, they want to know the artist and go to an event, not just an art show.”
“I started screen printing and t-shirt/poster design in the late 1980’s and around the same time a friend gave me a K-1000 camera, so I started learning photography on my own,” acknowledges Andrew. “My medium is mostly digital photography now, as well as installation/event based art and food events, PowerPoint presentations and more.”
Andrew believes it is important for others entering into the arts industry to “keep doing it, get in front of as many people as you can. Talk to people at your art shows. I am disappointed when artists are not available at their own shows.”
Artists that struck an awe chord for Andrew are Mark Ryden, David Lynch, Kukula and Mark Brooks. “Not because I do anything like what they do, but because their imagery is striking,” states Andrew.
Andrew’s current artistic event is tonight, Friday, April 4th, 8 p.m. – Midnight at Crimson Hilt Tattoo, 2907 E. Colfax Avenue (at Fillmore), Denver.
“It is called Unstill Life – It’s portraits of people not in a studio, but in the moment. I have wanted to show snapshot portraits I have been doing for a long time,” smiles Andrew and continues “There are so many I like, so there will be 22 portraits or more in this show. Food, drinks, art, people, you can’t beat that!”
Andrew Novick’s high energy and happy attitude is infectious. He is an artist to watch and collect as he has something to offer to the many levels of different artistic tastes.
This show is an excellent representation of the humor and light-heartedness captured by the creative eye; such is the eye of Andrew Novick.
