< Noah Spivak


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 in 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 has exhibited both nationally and internationally.

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.
