Trevor Novak is a Halifax based visual artist whose art practice is focused on digital art and ceramic sculpture. He studied ceramics at Sheridan College and majored in ceramics at NSCAD.
Trevor creates art as a roundabout way to work through emotions that he has difficulty expressing in other more practical ways. Rather than just doing or saying what is on his mind he tries to avoid all possible conflict in life by putting his frustrations, anxiety and lack of emotional maturity through his hands and into his art.
The human body in various states of abstraction or “caricaturization” is a principal theme in Trevor’s work. He uses these goofy cartoonish representations of the human body to introduce heavier themes in a seemingly light hearted manner while poking fun at himself and others, (mostly himself).
