His choice of unique and unusual media is based on Medina’s desire to integrate art into the narrative discourse of our everyday environments. Using a variety of media, Medina transforms objects into ergonomic art pieces to be used or worn as an instrument to foster a dialogue with the world, rather than simply being displayed in a niche or on a wall. These pieces, which include handbags, shoes, clothing, and trunks, are intended to tell stories, often through metaphors, and to capture the personalities of their collectors as they move through the intimate, familiar spaces in their everyday lives. When these works go out into the world, the collector and the art piece become integral parts of Medina’s indisputably unique approach to portraiture.
