Artist Biography

Antonio Molinari was born and raised in Michigan. He credits his artistic inspiration to his childhood spent in the countryside. There, he fell in love with nature at a very young age.  In particular, Molinari recalls a view across an open hillside, which lead to a beautiful tree line. He would wake up early just to watch the sunrise and wait “for the rays of light to dance across the treetops”.

Antonio Molinari’s childhood led him to pursue an education in the arts. As a result, he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit in 2003. Currently, he is a creative designer at Lincoln Motor Company. There, he works designing concept car interiors. Additionally, Molinari creates fine art in his free time. Nature, patterns, and textures inspired Molinari. In turn, this allows him to create stunning contemporary paintings. He says, “I love that memory so much that I am compelled to capture it. Pouring energy and wonder onto a canvas in hopes to share that same bliss of inspiration.”

Molinari draws inspiration from the techniques of Paul Jenkins, Helen Frankenthaler, and Jackson Pollock. For example, he pours metallic and vibrant colors across a sculpted canvas. He creates an array of mesmerizing tones and shapes.  Molinari focuses on colors interlacing in such a way that there is an illusion of depth.  For instance, he pours color like crossing veils suspended without gravity.  While his paintings remain energetic, he gently executes each painting with refinement.  Regardless of interpretation, the relationship between these transparent hues invites us into an intimate moment.

In sum, Antonio Molinari is an award-winning artist whose paintings grace the walls of many discerning collectors and is represented in fine art galleries throughout the United States.

Artist Statement

When painting I feel like I’m pouring emotions onto the canvas. I am always chasing, and trying to capture a positive reflection of a moment. To me, the paint has to be fluid and graceful. The paint personifies emotional transitions that arise within all of us.  This is what makes us human and sparks heart felt connections.

I fell in love with abstract painting because it is such a departure from my daily design work.  The expression and emotion of the paintings aren’t defined by feasibility guidelines.  I have a fond appreciation for when my abstracts aren’t followed up with questions like “how are we going to build this?”  The freedom from rules is marvelous. Pursuing both techniques truly enhance each other.  It’s how I achieve the highest sense of balance with all my artistry.

My paintings focus on these connections. Through harmonious movements of paint, I take people on a journey.   It can be a brief moment of uplifting energy or an hour of deep inspiration, but my greatest reward is moving the viewer emotionally. My goal is to have my works of art produce a positive energy and visual connection to the viewer.
