7 Jan­uary to 4 Fe­bru­ary, Bread and But­ter Gallery, Whi­tianga A pow­er­ful se­ries of hand­made pa­per col­lage and sten­cil spray- painted works by Auck­land­based artist Brad No­vak (aka New Blood Pop) fo­cuses on the an­i­mal king­dom against a back­ground of ar­che­typal ur­ban pop art themes in­clud­ing mod­ern life, fame, sci­ence fic­tion, su­per­heroes, Star Wars movies and the dig­i­tal dilemma. In­spired by Amer­i­can pop artist mega star Andy Warhol's lesser known an­i­mal se­ries, No­vak – who has a grow­ing in­ter­na­tional fol­low­ing – de­scribes his works as “global, fla­grant, iconic and ironic”. breadand­but­ter­gallery.co.nz
