His work

To talk about the work of contemporary artist Xan Medina is to talk about visual crime, about the illumination of suffering, about the anguish that this rebels us. Medina investigates through the network to get the images and take them out of context giving them a total turn and a new meaning that goes beyond the ordinary, resulting in an original, provocative and intimate work.
As a result, their worlds are very different and reflect in their work a constant interest: death, grotesque, tragicomedy, infants, sex, animals, their native Doñana Preserve … As defined by the artist himself. “The miseries and virtues of the human being is what makes my brushworks move on the supports I use.”
That is why we find diverse animals and characters of great imaginative wealth and great psychological depth. His proposal delves into the psyche of the contemporary subject with courage, causing him to question himself through the drama of his compositions. His work reflects a constant interest in a fauna that we could very well affirm with the literary genre of the fable.

 

Artist definition

Moreover, the artist himself would define them as follows: “My works are like little fables. The tragic and stark aspect of the animal world rightly reflects in my opinion the moment of uncertainty, crisis and drama that human beings are experiencing today.
In addition Xan Medina externalizes through its elegant brushstroke and exquisite technique, a rich, strong and colorful inner world. His images make up a kind of personal diary where the extremes coexist admirably: the good and the abject, the beautiful and the eschatological, the playful and the tragic, the childish and the frightening.
It may be disturbing, yes, and sometimes distressing, like life itself. It is what has the work of Xan Medina that leaves no one indifferent.
