Felipe Molina (b. 1964 Queens, New York City)
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 NY Printmaking Workshop he expanded into paperworks including watercolors, engraving, and aquatints. The oil paintings often contain contrasting textures and deep evocative coloring reminiscent of Pre Colombian primitivism and modern Latin American Masters. His work has been featured on the album covers of Counting Crows, with eleven original works published in a new book of song lyrics for the popular rock band. Felipe currently splits his time between New York City and Lexington, Kentucky and can be seen on exhibit in New York, Connecticut, Kentucky, Nashville, and California.
