Jordi Mollá: Reviving the Masters
On the screen and the canvas, this artist brings the work to life
Of his many roles he played on screen, actor Jordi Mollá in “Genius” helped bring to life the greatest minds of those who made history and these days, in his real-life foray into art, he is reviving the classical works of those who he considers to be the great Masters – from Leonardo Da Vinci to Pablo Picasso.
“My work is a transformation into something more current,” says Mollá, “something that the people of today can understand.”
Molla – who has been painting for decades and is today represented by David Rosen Galleries -- will in 2018 be exhibiting his work at several events during Miami Art Week. It’s already has been in famed displays including The Lowe Gallery in Los Angeles, the PicassoMio Gallery in Barcelona and Sotheby’s in Madrid – not to mention countless private venues and hotels in Beverly Hills, including a collaboration with Domingo Zapata and Adrian Brody. His paintings have participated in events headlined by the likes of Pope Francisco in the City of the Vatican, and Eva Longoria’s Global Gift Foundation in Spain. And he’s no stranger to Miami, having showed his work at the Epic Hotel, Kiki on the River, Bulgari.
“I use elements of extreme beautify from the classics and then convert them into POP art,” says Mollá, “mixing styles such as graffiti and in many cases, writing on the paintings themselves. The purpose is to make a profound impact on the viewer.”
