In 2003, he became the youngest artist ever to display work at the Macedonian Academy of Science and Art. He earned his teaching certificate in 2004 and served as a professor of fine art at St. Naum Ohridski High School in Makedonski Brod from 2007 to 2011. In 2011, Noveski completed his Master’s Degree in Sculpture at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Skopje.

Since moving to Belgrade, Noveski has been engaged as a professor of fine arts at Bejza International School (2013-2014), an external advisor on cultural affairs for the Macedonian Embassy (2014-2018), president of the Macedonian National Council Board of Culture (2015-2019), artistic director of the Days of Macedonian Culture in Belgrade (2013-present), member of the Board of Managers of the Society of Fine Artists of Macedonia in Serbia (2014-present), and cultural collaborator for the Branislav Nušić Foundation (2014-present).
