DAVID NOVROS (b. 1941)
The American painter David Novros (b. 1941, Los Angeles) gained a B.F.A from the University of Southern California in 1963, and moved from the West Coast to New York in 1965. A sojourn in Europe was transformative for his art, and among the influential discoveries he made were the Italian early Renaissance fresco paintings with their immersive power. Novros had his first exhibition at Park Place Gallery in New York in 1966, together with Mark di Suvero. In the 1960s Novros's work was included in a number of important Minimal Art exhibitions. His works are held by institutions such as the Menil Collection, Houston, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and many others, and have been shown extensively, both in the United States and abroad. Novros lives and works in New York City.
