    While in Mexico in the early 1990s, Novoa felt akin to Tomás Sánchez’s treatment of the landscape (though Sánchez’s trade is the country not the metropolis). Later, he fixed his attention on the often-ignored, detailed background renditions of the Flemish masters' paintings and engravings. Add to this Édouard Baldus' photos, Escher, and American pop– plus all architectural styles enamored with power – and you get an idea of Novoa’s influences... Drawing– not painting– these possible worlds is what interests Novoa, a perspective virtuoso who indulges in a practice considered second to painting and passed along (since the Renaissance) to the architecture profession. His pulse is careful and precise and his fantastic images are realistic and obtained in extremely small detail.
    Alfredo Triff, 2004
