The Awe Inspiring Work of Molos Morina
Being a freelance writer and perpetual seeker and promoter of new art, Facebook has been my go-to for meeting new awe-inspiring artists.
Of course, I have my Facebook art groups on there which are all aptly named, Artists United where people will join and I’ll
excitedly be exposed to their new energy…but other times I’ll find a radical talent purely by chance.
Recently, while visiting a friend’s profile page, I noticed that he “liked” an artist by the name of, Molos Morina, so I checked out
what the fuss was about.
I must say, this man is talented beyond measure.
Living in the UK (London to be more precise) he tells me of his childhood experiences bringing him to where he is today, not only as an
artist, but as a man.
Molos is from Kosovo in Southeastern Europe, but as the little country became fraught with war, he found his family moving to
London….he was only six years old…a little boy in a new, intimidating environment.
Those memories of war, chaos, and trepidation have stayed firmly with him.
His father was an artist and taught the young, apprehensive Molos to embrace art, to create with passion and his
sorrows would be lessened through doing so…the young lad took heed of his father’s words.
Now, in his adult years, he brings those same emotions forth where they breathe fresh life into every medium he touches.
From his vivid sculptures and paintings to his captivating digital creations.
Each piece is a bit of his tumultuous moments and rejoicing revelations.
Each piece is a bit of him.
When I look at his work, I find that I am seeing fragments of myself.
It’s not the subject matter, but rather the intensity of raw emotions.
Take for example the one sculpture I am showing here…
The cool caressing, smooth lines, organic and pure, so supple and soul evoking.
Than there are his photo-manipulations, he effortless blends two worlds together and he makes the process
look so completely seamless.
When I asked Molos, “what is something you would like to tell other burgeoning artists?” what he had to say was so inspiring and beautiful.
“Just keep working, all the time, everyday. And when people give you negative feedback, 99% of the time it has nothing to do with your work, it’s because they see failings in themselves or they’re own work and they express it in that manner.
So don’t even think about stopping when that happens, which it will, just carry on the way you are and you’ll reach any goal you set yourself.”
What a lovely message to send to all the hard working, young talent in the art world.
It’s not an easy job, or always a rewarding job being an artist.
But with passionate people, like Molos helping to brighten the world it sure makes being an artist a more
happy community to be in.
