Daniel Novela is a man who’s day would be incomplete without having held a paintbrush. His sophisticated paintings radiate light and the heart of the African landscape, as does the man himself. His use of colour and technique has drawn the attention of many art enthusiasts across the world. Daniel has developed a powerful range of techniques and paints subjects that are close to his heart with sensitivity, depth and sophistication.
“While I am all African, my style is not typically African. I gravitate towards Impressionism particularly John Constable, Trevor Chamberlain and Richard Schmid. I also admire South African artist Adriaan Boshoff.”
Daniel has exhibited regularly in South Africa as well as the US, Germany, Switzerland and Britain. From pavements and flea markets in rural North West to some of the world’s finest galleries, he has always attracted attention.
