Felipe Molina (b. 1964 Queens, New York City. American/Colombian)

I began my professional career in 1993 at Ambassador Galleries in SoHo, NYC. In three decades my art has explored human relationships to the environment, imaginary situations, the passage of time, philosophical ideas, and the psychological connection between humans and animals. My 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 I expanded into paperworks including watercolors, engraving, aquatints, and drawings. The oil paintings often contain contrasting textures and evocative coloring reminiscent of Pre-Colombian primitivism and modern Latin American Masters. Paintings have been featured on selected album covers of
Counting Crows, with eleven original works published in a new book of song lyrics for the Grammy-nominated rock band.
I have served on the board of directors of the New Haven Arts Council and have been a member of the National Arts Club in NYC. My work can be seen in public collections and galleries in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Belgium, Kentucky, California, and North Carolina.
