Juan Pablo Medina’s work (Jalisco, 1984) presents the artist as an operator of relatively new visual fields, which participate in the process of expansion of the photographic canon.
Medina develops his work by exploring both the possibilities of remote observation and the inappropriate nature of cell phone cameras. In addition, he collects, reinterprets and reorganizes a seemingly arbitrary selection of visual material that circulates uninterruptedly through the Internet to underline the state of constant surveillance in which we find ourselves.
Medina works with various media including photography, videoart, video-performance and new media.
He has participated in many international festivals like FONLAD (Portugal), NodoCCS (Venezuela) , Deslave (USA), El Escorial (Spain) and exhibited his work in Centro de la Imagen (México), Centro de las Artes (Monterrey), Centro de las Artes (San Luis Potosí), Centro de Cultura Contemporánea de Castelo Branco (Castelo Branco), The room contemporary Art Space (Venice).
He is Director of Luz Viajera Educación Artística Online, an online platform founded in 2015 which promotes art programs in México and Latinoamérica.
He lives and works in Monterrey city with his wife Maria, his son Pedro and Leite, his dog.
