Revered as one of Spain’s most prolific and sought-after modern-day thespians to grace the International cinema stage, Jordi Mollà has for over two decades imbued multiple creative personas: actor, writer, director, and painter. Mollà was born on July 1, 1968, in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, and trained in acting at the Barcelona Institute of Theatre; furthering his studies in Italy, Hungary, and England.
As an artist, the self-taught painter is known to channel as much passion and purpose into his artwork as he does with his acting. Expressive and bold, with overt and subtle messages married with a myriad of colors, Mollà transmits oceans of images from his minds’ eye to canvas and a host of installations of vast and varied nature. Although some of Mollà’s art may seem spontaneous and created in the bounds of a finite time frame, a great number of his sought-after works have taken the artist many years to complete. Mollà returns again and again to a piece, adding ideas, colors, feelings, and universes of experience in a new unit of time, thus enriching the artwork, bestowing it renewed breath and life.
Mollà the painter draws as much from the world around him as he does the world within him. The kaleidoscope of external tastes, textures, aromas, personalities, and experiences the artist has been processed and recreated in a manner that the person or culture for whom he is creating can readily find meaning in the artwork;
not because it is simplistic, but because Mollà somehow finds a bridge on which to connect and communicate visually with his audience through multiple and different styles and techniques that takes him from abstract, to pop, to graffiti, to hyperrealism, etc..And this deference to the viewer has garnered Mollà a steadily growing and loyal pool of avid private collectors and celebrities as Johnny Deep, and Carolina Herrera Jr, on multiple continents like the United States, Spain, Germany, Mexico, England, Italy France etc
