Felipe Molina began his professional career in 1993 at Ambassador Galleries in SoHo, NYC. In more than two decades his art has explored human relationships to the environment, imaginary situations, the passage of time, philosophical ideas and the psychological connection between humans and animals. His imagery is imbued with summarily drawn landscapes that belie an intense motive and preoccupation with detail, surface, and hidden meaning.
After learning etching at the famed New York Printmaking Workshop, he expanded into paper works including watercolors, engraving, aquatints and large-scale drawings. His oil paintings often contain contrasting textures and evocative coloring reminiscent of Pre-Colombian primitivism and modern Latin American masters, while recent drawings explore classical themes and realism with technical finish.
His work has been featured on the album covers of Counting Crows, with eleven works published in a new book of song lyrics for the popular rock band. Felipe currently lives and works in Lexington.
