The visionary world of José Molina
Molina presents his latest series of surreal drawings, paintings and prints at Able Fine Art NY Gallery.
The visionary world of José Molina is the first New York solo exhibition of the artist –a collection of surreal, mesmerizing images formed with technical precision and executed with the intent to evoke the perplexing depths of human emotion. Through his art, José Molina opens the door to a world of outlandish monsters, allowing the viewer to rediscover their own complex selves through his world of revelations.
