About the artwork

Inspired by the cult 90's movie “Reservoir Dogs”, Novak has grounded the famous scene within Aotearoa by using the Kiwi, Whio (Blue Duck), Shag, Tui, Huia, and Albatross. Novak says “There is a deeper meaning behind this pop art image... many of the birds of NZ are under threat (and some are extinct) and that is something they have in common, much like their matching black and white suits.

Novak's self-titled 'New Blood Pop' amalgamates street and urban art influences with inspiration from his life, including his medical background. Inspiration also comes from his world travels and the famous letter that Richard Hamilton wrote to the Smithson's in 1957 - describing the different characteristics of Pop Art. New Blood Pop is...

- Concerned with how we experience life ('veiled' or with clarity);

- Concerned with 21st century issues (e.g. inequalities in wealth and health, sustainability and globalization);

- Concerned with escapism (science fiction/fantasy and comics/superheroes-villains);

- Repetitive;

- Scientific or medical;

- Global;

- Ironic.
