(Dobrovnik, 1933 – Belgrade, 2018)

Koloman Novak was a kinetic and luminokinetic artist.

He graduated from the Academy of Applied Arts in Belgrade in 1959. He moved to Vienna in 1967 and returned to Belgrade in 1971.

He went through several artistic phases. He created relief Art Informel works and then entered the field of neoconstructivist research of light, optical and kinetic phenomena. He began kinetic and luminokinetic research in 1961.

Novak created a series of luminokinetic objects – mechanical dynamic light systems as a work of art. One of his most notable works is The Great Light Organon (1968), which synthesized sound and light and produced several lumino-kinetic objects in interiors and exteriors.
