Creator

Artist

Being different and making a difference is what I thrive to achieve by creating art works. My footprints originate from a unique vision that cannot be categorized or compared to others, they speak their own language.

Dodo Newman started to paint at already a very early age. She is a professional artist since 2003.

In 2006 she developed her own signature technique inspired by the dripping action painting of Jackson Pollock and by abstract expressionism of Paul Jenkins and Noriyoshi Ishigooka.

In 2008 Dodo Newman became the pupil for 6 months of the Hungarian painter Jozsef Burkus.

Dodo Newman is the inventor of the liquid resin paint, which is a new artistic way to use existing materials. She also used her invention in various design territories.

Dodo Newman is a person who thinks and acts “out of the box” and is moved by visions, which have never been before.

Her collections, creations are all about owning something, which is unique, rare.


Innovator

“I started as an abstract expressionist artist. Of course there are ten-thousands of artists creating abstract expressionist styles, so I had to find out a way I would be remembered and stand out from this incredible crowd. Since I did not want to change my style, I decided that I will start to experiment a new artistic technique. It took me a 9 years long trip but I finally experimented the resin based art.

With my resin technique I managed to change the simple abstract art, it was the first resin on plexiglas used with an original and unique process. People started to remember me as the creator who makes resin pieces.

People recognized me because I was able to challenge the existing and to combine it with some new and innovative way. Therefore I became the very first resin artist.”

Aesthetic and technical side, creating and invention are both elements that are all important for Dodo.

“What I learnt through my innovations, visions is that you have to continuously change, you never get it 100% done but you will always change it into something new and something different. Life always helps if you keep your focus on your innovation and keep on making any step.The key is not to loose your focus from your original goal.

You cannot loose until you keep on trying, you loose only when you stop trying.”

Dodo is always experimenting and searching for new things, she is continuously looking for new techniques, materials and ways to use them. This is the reason why she invented the resin art technique, revolutionizing Plexiglas art design.

An innovator is someone who reimagines, who goes beyond the seen and already experimented, experienced things, who will forever push the boundaries inspired by continuous curiosity.

Whatever the reimagined vision is, it forever expands and always has an impact on other fields as well.

“I was very happy to paint and work freely, but I wanted to start and find new ways in my art, new challenges. My way in life and in art has never been the same as what the majority does, my way has always been and is unique and special.”

In the following years Dodo experimented with a new technique, with which she worked on plexiglas with natural resin.

“It was a truly big challenge for me because I was working with a highly flammable material and in the beginning there were several times when my studio caught fire.”
The new technique brought all the expected results and high quality, new artworks were born.

“I immensely love to work with this technique until this present day, since all artworks have two sides because of the plexiglass unique material. These two sides play wonderful games with light, so many works give very different effects during daytime or during night. This is the technique that makes my art more playful and more free too.”


Invention of a new material

Dodo Newman is an accomplished artist, the inventor of her unique plexi-resin technique, as well as the new material the liquid crystallized resin. Her works are currently placed at the 71st place among the World Ultra Luxury Trends (overtaking Chopard, Bentley, Rolls Royce…), published in January 2014.

The combination of Dodo Newman’s invention, the liquid resin and the various crystal elements paves the way for a new line of luxury and art.

“I was very happy to paint and work freely, but I wanted to start and find new ways in my art, new challenges. My way in life and in art has never been the same as what the majority does, my way has always been and is unique and special.”

In the years when Dodo’s abstract and free expressive way of painting was developing, she experimented with a new technique with which she worked on Plexiglas with resin and other materials.

“It was a truly big challenge for me because I was working with a highly flammable material and in the beginning there were several times when my studio caught fire.”
– laughs Dodo as she recalls these memories.

The new technique brought all the expected results and high quality, new artworks were born.

“I immensely love to work with this technique until this present day, since all artworks have two sides because of the plexiglas unique material. These two sides play wonderful games with light, all the works give very different effects during daytime or during night. This is the technique that makes my art more playful and more free too.”

It is also a material which allows Dodo to add other interesting materials as well like crystals, diamonds and diamond powder creating this way not only transparent but also sparkling and dazzling effects.

Fairy Wings I.

All of us have a desire to love and to be loved unconditionally. During our lives most of us have experienced difficulties not just to find, but to fight for true love and to believe in it unconditionally. It is one of the most powerful drive and also one that has been misunderstood, misused and also undervalued. It has the true power to transform ourselves through another person.

It is not just a motivational book but also a true story and a rare insight to a well-known family, such as the Siemens family, which is also the founder and owner of one of the biggest corporations in the World.

The book also presents a very interesting line of two descendants: one of the Siemens family and one of a Jewish Holocaust survivor of the camp in Ravensbrück, Germany. During World War II the Siemens corporation made Jewish women and children work in camps and the main character of the book is the granddaughter of one of these Jewish women, who survived and lived almost until she was 100 years old. Life gave a chance to redeem the past and gave to a Holocaust and a Siemens descendant a gift in the form of a common child.

It gives courage to people to believe in love and not to give up on it at the first obstacle.

It also shows through a true life experience how precious a love can be when it is unconditional, and how it has to be appreciated as a gift from Life. It gives a message of believing through the heart and not through the mind, and to have Faith in the power of it even when all external conditions seem to go against it. Life is about the love we give and receive to each other, to our future and to ourselves and also about changes that it makes possible.

It enhances people to “see” beyond things and to allow love to transform their lives.

Fairy Wings II.

There are some rare moments in nature when the rainbow meets with the dark storms, just as the spiritual and artistic world of Dodo Newman met with the material and high society world of the father of her daugther.

Fairy Wings is a book consisting of eight series about a love story of a woman who never gave up her belief in true love, in the one she loved, in their child, who fought against the secrecy, dividing and oppressing them and who decided not to stay in the dark.

A very powerful motivational book to all who ever felt true love in a difficult situation. A book of message of how to go on and keep on believing in love when everything seems to be against it. A path to find back to our own selves, our hearts and our faith in Love.

In 2009 artist Dodo Newman envisioned a commemorative art project for her holocaust survivor grandmother, who was about to turn 100 years old, and also for the human aspects of the legendary Titanic ship. During that time Dodo did not even imagine that 3 years later this project, holding such an importance in destiny will transform entirely her life and will give a ground for these thoughts about true love…

The book Fairy Wings is a very powerful motivational book to all who ever felt true love in a difficult life situation. A book of message of how to go on and keep on believing in love when everything seems to be against it. A path to find back to our own self, our heart and our faith in Love.

There are some rare moments in nature when the colourful rainbow meets with the dark storms, just as when the spiritual and artistic world of Dodo met with the material and high society world of the father . This is how Dodo found her true love back in 2011 when she met with the father, the descendant of the founder of the famous Siemens company.

From the very moment of their first connection, their story was a spiritual journey of changes, of finding and of belief in each other. The journey however was continuously overshadowed by their love being kept in secret, in the dark. From the seed of their love and their faith in each other a new life was born. In August 2012 Dodo gave birth to their daughter, Faye Martha Novak and the dark shadow entered this chapter of their journey.

The art project that made it possible that the two contrasting worlds of the father and Dodo meet was dedicated to Dodo’s grandmother, Marta who never gave up hope during the worse period of her life, and being Jewish in the midst of the Holocaust became a personal hero of the 2nd World War. In that period of time in history the Siemens corporation had a serious role during the War and in the life of Marta, who was taken to the concentration camp in Ravensbrück and was forced to work in the factory of the Siemens corporation.

During Dodo’s constant fight against the secrecy, the darkness dividing them she realised that there are some hidden scars from the past that the father has been carrying since years with him. Through her faith in change, in healing, in the power of love to bring together and not divide, Dodo never gave up her hope to join the lives of his’s children, to unite two worlds and families in the name of understanding.

Our Souls know much more than we can imagine… Life gave Dodo, the descendant of Marta, and the father , offspring of the Siemens family the magic of love and the unexpected gift in a form of their child, Faye Martha.

Faye Martha bears the symbol of “faith”, which is the meaning of their daughter’s name given to her by the father, and Martha, to remember Dodo’s grandmother’s sacrifice and proof of forgiveness and compassion.

Fairy Wings is a book consisting of eight series about a love story of a woman who never gave up her belief in true love, in the one she loved, in their child, in her purpose of life through her art and who decided not to stay in the dark.
