Gildo Medina is considered one of the most successful and important illustrators from around the globe by the world’s leading publisher of Fine Arts, TASCHEN in the last edition « 100 illustrators « . Notably, he has received over twenty-five awards in their different disciplines worldwide. Among these: 8 Quorum Prize and 9 A! Diseño Prize in Mexico, the Effie Prize in France, a New York festivals awards and MTV Music Award in the United States.An artistic trajectory of influence makes Gildo Medina a synonym of versatility and constant juxtaposition. From his origins in pencil and a profound relationship with realism, he masters the art of transformation while maintaining a watermark signature. A background of cultural and academic diversity is the foundation of his work: Mexico the surreal underlay, Florence the traditional techniques, Paris the sophistication, Berlin the vision, Hong Kong the complexity, New York the energy. Gildo Medina further enlarges the scope of his artistic reach merging photography and film as a way to sketch time through time itself. He achieves complete synchronization through the use of drawing techniques as guidelines for motion within different time lapses. Each photograph becomes an instant drawing, each video a set of photographs in the process of being drawn. Gildo Medina, the artist, the drawing, the enterprise. A subtle contradiction of constant change.
