Brad Novak

Here's another of my favourite recent finds... Brad Novak
The 'pop art' style really suits his range of images,
while still retaining the hand-made feel of screenprints.
I was fascinated to discover that Brad has no formal art training,
in fact his 'day job' is as a medical doctor!

"By combining my passion for two very different and exciting careers,
I'm continuing to challenge stereotypes.
I have found a balance that I once only dreamed of."
(Brad Novak, 2009)
