Lives and works in Caracas and London

Daniel Medina’s artistic practice questions notions of state, society and the self. Through a variety of media Medina explores the paradoxes latent in the 21st century psyche and examines the role of the artist in a post-globalised, digital-era. A witness to the consequences of globalization in his native Caracas, Medina challenges our dependence on social constructs as a means of self-definition. Through the playful appropriation of cultural ephemera such as maps, birdcages and antique lithographs, Medina has developed three-dimensional structures that intimate an ambiguous game between container and content. while carving new meaning into familiar objects, Daniel Medina reinterprets the mundane with new depth and shines a light on society’s misgivings.
