Hungarian illustrator Jacqueline Molnár will open a solo exhibition Fairy Tale and reality on February 5th, 2020 at 17.00 in the Estonian Children’s Literature Centre. The exhibition is open until March 6th. 

Jacqueline Molnár’s style is characterized by bright and lively colours and meticulous details. She uses a variety of techniques: collage, watercolour, tempera, acrylics, photography and more. The exhibition in Tallinn features Jacqueline’s works from recent years. Visitors can peek at the unique world of different techniques, colours, and stories. For example, the exhibition visitors can see a series of works depicting sea monsters. These works draw our attention to the consequences of environmental pollution and inspires to change our consumption habits.

The illustrator wishes to touch both younger and older art lovers through her exhibition and she hopes that her work will spark creativity in kids: “I try to share my work and the joy of creating with kids and adults both – this sets me free and gives me wings to fly. I hope that children will enjoy the exhibition and they will wish to paint, draw and create fairy tales themselves.”

Jacqueline Molnár was born in 1973 in Budapest. She graduated from the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design and studied in Gröningen, Amsterdam and Barcelona. She has illustrated more than 40 children’s books and made several animations.

The exhibition was organized by the Estonian Children’s Literature Center and The Hungarian Institute of Estonia.
