About the Artist
John Medina was born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas, the hometown of Whataburger and Selena. He received his BFA from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi and his MFA from Northern Illinois University in Dekalb, Illinois. He currently lives and works in San Antonio as an artist and designer for Alamo Basement. Medina often incorporates a variety of media into his artwork, but has an affinity for hot glue and relief printing. His work is inspired by Mexican folklore, Texas history, urban legends, cryptozoology, quantum physics, religious iconography, cultural traditions, science fiction, comic books, “gangsta” rap, breakfast tacos and drunken story-telling. His latest accomplishment, a collaboration with San Anto Cultural Arts, was completion of the world’s first stereoscopic 3-D mural entitled, Vision del Futuro. Located in downtown San Antonio, this large-scale mural project, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts, features an innovative painting technique that is enhanced by the use of 3-D glasses.
