Noah Spivak studied at the Cooper Union School of Art, New York and received a Bachelor of Fine Art in photography from Emily Carr University of Art and Design, Vancouver (2015). He soon after migrated to Melbourne where he has been exhibiting and gaining a following since.
The artist’s compulsive urge to collect – objects, relationships, meaning – is used to explore the small phenomena of the reality we inhabit. Spivak’s current processes collaborate with the alchemical world, creating temporal artworks that express a deep adoration (and understanding) for the materials used. His fascination with the invisible and obsession for process-led experimentation culminate in a body of work that explores how we experience visual art and the subconscious decisions we make leading up to this moment.
Spivak won the 2021 Emerging Artist Award presented by FortyFive Downstairs (Australia) and has been featured as VOGUE Living's 'Fresh Take' - naming the artist as “one of the most promising young Australian artists” in 2022. Spivak’s work has been purchased for permanent collection by institutions across Australia, Canada and the United States. Spivak has exhibited both nationally and internationally.
