Artist Statement:

From metal welding, to glass work, illustrations and even graffiti, the artwork of Australian-born Sahara Novotna’s creative expressions have taken many different forms. A proud third-generation artist, she has found pleasure in not only the physicality of the work, but also as an effective way to voice thoughts on everything from politics to pop culture, as seen in her acclaimed ‘Money’ series.

Exposed early to the intricacies of sculpting with metal and wood by her father, a Czech artist, she has grown with the notion that inspiration should only be bound by the imagination and not the materials. Paired with her love of travel bestowed to her by her mother, Sahara’s work offers the execution of highly unique concepts and styles that have been informed by her distinct experiences.

After extensive travel through Asia, Europe and the Middle East, and a brief stint as a practicing lawyer, Sahara followed her passion and settled in Los Angeles, opening a collaborative studio and gallery space in Hollywood. She has since become highly collected by celebrity clients, worked with a number of luxury brands including Porsche and Graffiti Library, exhibited in galleries and museums across the globe, collaborated on art projects for film and television and given back to her community with hospital murals, charity art auctions and collaborative projects.
