Anton Molnár works of art are immediately recognisable. His story is everywhere, in both form and substance, and in his landmark compositions. Just as a musician would combine notes, he “tunes” protagonists, atmospheres, objects, patina and calligraphy in an irresistibly readable tale. First we see, then we observe, we notice, we recognise, we question… and finally build up our own story.
This is the uniqueness of his work. A storyteller-composer-artist whose “pictorial tales” are calling us to turn into actors of his painting’s lives. To a traditional technique and formation Anton Molnar allies a contemporary approach, a combination which makes his pieces so special. He considers painting an art of living, a language, a way to constantly questioning himself and his time.
One can think that such diversity is the result of the artist’s personal culture, as he lived in very different countries and travelled extensively. Or else: his two lives, diametrically opposed, on both sides of the Iron Curtain.
