Statement

Glexis Novoa is a visual artist and cultural activist. Since the late eighties, he produces art in many different media, including painting, performance, installation, and, most recently, graphite drawings—the material that would become his trademark. Novoa has attained international recognition for his site-specific wall drawings, which exist on the border between ephemeral art and architecture. His work repeatedly turns to the architecture of power and politics as its main subject.

Novoa’s work is featured in numerous private collections, international museums, and in public places. He lives in the US and works anywhere.
