Jiri Tibor Novak

Jiri Tibor Novak arrived in Australia in 1970 from Czechoslovakia after the Soviet invasion. He has become a respected artist, teacher and community worker. He is also a children’s book illustrator. Tibor is well known for his quirky and engaging artworks which often pose more questions than they answer. Although he has embraced the Australian way of life, his Czech heritage and European influence are apparent in his work. Novak’s paintings are delicate, poetic and whimsical. He works with gouache and watercolour but also makes etchings and oil paintings.
