“ The Essence of Beauty in writing is not to be found in the written word but lies in response to unlimited change;
line after line should always have a way of giving life; character after character should seek for life-movement.
Express it well.”
-ancient Chinese anonymous quote
Currently based out of Miami FL, Adrian Molina creates thoughtfully striking and visually playful paintings. Inspired by Taoist philosophies scientific theories of subatomic, and sonic behavior, Molina expresses simple themes of balance, identity and invisible connections. His paintings flow with illusions of movement and depth with swift calligraphic fluid brush-strokes of black ink, juxtaposed with slow and contemplative placement of color on canvas or paper. Such themes and influences stem from a well rounded life in all the arts and sciences, and a family that traveled frequently between the city/suburbs of Miami and the country jungles of Costa Rica. It was the observation of these two worlds that built the foundation of Molina’s art artwork.
Molina expanded his visions in Art history/theory, and all mediums of craft at School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. His work has been exhibited in Miami, Barcelona, and Boston; featured in the Boston Globe Arts front page for exhibiting a 76 yard long painting viewed via a "machine" also designed and fabricated by him. Adrian has now been residing in his hometown returning to his roots with a bounty of experiences with creations that are brought to life out of his studio in the famed Wynwood Art District of Miami.
