CORAL GABLES, FL – 17 Jul, 2017 – On Thursday, July 13, 2017, a vacant space was transformed into a Pop Up Art Gallery filled with the art of Jordi Molla. The space located at 290 Alhambra Circle in Coral Gables will remain open to the public and will display art from around the world alongside the Jordi Molla exhibit. The space, the first Ford dealership in Miami, has extraordinary potential and can be morphed into an ideal setting for numerous events.
Jordi Molla, who is currently filming a new movie with John Travolta, attended the event and displayed thirty pieces of art. Often portraying the “bad guy” in such films as Bad Boys II, Blow, La Colombiana and Riddick, Jordi creates art depicting his anti-violence nature. His collection of self-portraits portrays him in many vulnerable states of pain, pleasure, and fear, and his “Renaissance Women” captures the stories of Hollywood movie stars.
