Spanish actor and painter Jordi Mollà chose Nuru restaurant in Santa Catalina, Palma de Mallorca as the location of his new art showcase. A total of nine paintings were presented by Jordi himself on the evening of 22 December, attracting many people from the Balearic art scene.
The fresh collection of artworks, entitled ‘Women of the Renaissance and an Elephant‘ is the latest creative project from one of Spain’s most well-known figures in the world of art and film respectively.
Speaking exclusively to abcMallorca, Mollà said, “Art is about sharing something and the owners of Nuru are good friends of mine. This is not an exhibition exactly; it’s a collection of Renaissance paintings reworked for the times we’re in now.”
“I focus on women in these paintings because I love women. These women, they gave birth; they kept bringing Renaissance. Women because they are powerful; women because they are mothers, they are mother nature. Even if all of these paintings were painted by men, the women still seem in control; they are the muse.
They come from a book that I bought, full of men, full of Renaissance portraits. So I did a selection of, for me, the most contemporary faces. Because none of these women are, as I know, queens, or princesses. They are anonymous women. Even Mona Lisa was anonymous. So I wanted to bring them here, to our era…. to take these women from 400 years ago, to make them like Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and Madonna.”
Several of Jordi Mollà’s iconic works remain permanently on display at Nuru, which serves superb fusion cuisine in a stylish contemporary setting.
