Daniel Novotny – Artist, Producer & Founder of Atelier Novotny

I am an artist, producer and founder of Atelier Novotny.

I believe that the life of an artist is a path of inner transformation. Our understanding relies upon our ability to reach beyond our ego. In order to get to know ourselves in the world and the world reflecting in us, we have to recognize the context in which we create.

My efforts on this website aim to encourage you to study and practice. To recognize and understand. Ultimately, to evolve. For evolution within transforms the world without.

To learn more about my outlook on the creative process and the function of art, read my series of articles titled Think & Paint.
