“Gustavo Novoa – Paradise Revisited” is the compelling narrative of 50 years inside the evolving career of artist Gustavo Novoa, best known for having created a Utopian Jungle of his own in his many one-man shows in New York, Paris, Palm Beach, Beverly Hills, Santiago – Chile, Caracas – Venezuela, Spain, Switzerland, and so on… The Book has 120 photographs; some of personal interest, but mostly all full colored reproductions that date back to the early 60s’ and his street paintings of Paris all the way to present day exhibitions. The book is in the form of a questionnaire. Author Brigitte Duvall-Kennedy writes the preface to every chapter in his life and asks the relevant question. But it is Novoa himself that leads you into his colorful life, adding his personal vision, humor and wit to describe the many roles one has to play when the spiritual and the mundane, the artistic flow and self-expression are intertwined. Novoa likes to think of himself as a Black Panther trapped in the body of a well-travelled painter. Over the years, Novoa has accumulated an impressive list of collectors whom include First Families Regan and bush, Royal Families Prince Charles of England and Victoria Eugenia of Spain, Hollywood “royalty”: Hepburn and Stallone, as well as fashion icons such as Valentino, Versace, Halston, and Carolina Herrera.
