Alejandro Medina is a multidisciplinary artist and architect interested in geometrical abstraction, plant morphology and the ephemerality of nature. He holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles.
Building on his studies of architecture, photography and 3D visualization his work lies between the crossing points of different mediums (in a constant interchange between 2D and 3D worlds, and often times utilizing a combination of both digital and analog techniques). Approaching art-making as science; his process often involves multiple phases of research, the implementation of emergent technologies and a deep concern for material investigation.
Medina primarily draws inspiration from his childhood encounters with nature. Born and raised in Guatemala City, he grew up very close to the natural world. He is especially interested in the peculiarities that occur under extreme environmental conditions. In the case of Guatemala: the tropics ( environments such as the rainforest and coral reef).
Intrinsic in his work is a sense of curiosity for ones surroundings; as well as a desire to unveil the unexpected interconnections occurring within specific systems and ultimately life. His most recent work deals with the innate, yet complicated relationship that exists between humans, architecture and nature.
