Adrian Molina (AdMo) is new to the Mad Hatter this year. He does installations, scupltures and paints. Adrian has never participated in an any art shows before.
"I am a philosopher that became a visual artist. I use any medium necessary demanded by an idea I wish to see manifested. For the Mad Hatter Festival I will be exhibiting, in a vaudevillian style, a painting 75 yards long viewed via a steam-punk make-shift wooden machine. It is most definitely an unforgettable spectacle not to be missed," he says.
Adrian classically trained as an observational painter, like the old masters but he includes modern techniques and influences.
"In 2006, during my education in Boston’s School of the Museum of Fine Arts/ Tufts University, I was greatly influenced by the Dada philosophies and makeshift invention of re-purposing objects. I exorcised sculpture, inventive mechanics, video and performance art while using 'Painting' in all of its meanings and history, as the subject matter. By the time I graduated (2009), my philosophies in art making had concluded that in order to create a timeless masterpiece in the 21st century, the object(s) of artistic influence need to stimulate multiple observational senses simultaneously, and reveal the traces and references of its history," says Adrian.
