Paintings are one of the oldest art forms -- throughout history artists have played an important role in documenting social movements, spiritual beliefs and general life and culture. Novica's collection of original paintings is a celebration of artistic freedom that ranges from personal interpretations of tradition, to exploring the depths of surrealism.
The online gallery features an international collection hosting the works of established masters as well as newcomers, and has helped forge the careers of many around the world such as Ney Cardoso and Theus.
Themes are grand and varied; a canvas can express an artist's complex view of life or exalt nature through inspiring landscapes and vivid depictions of local flora and fauna.
Some artists prefer oils, acrylics or watercolors; others mix media with jute, bronze leaf applications and even tar.
Paintings by elephants in Bali and Thailand have endeared us all, and hold a special place in the Novica gallery as an ongoing fundraiser for the elephant sanctuaries that participate.
We hope you enjoy our collection!
