My name is Isa Guadalupe Medina and I am a designer and artist based in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. My work focuses on the intricacy and detail that is reflected from nature and my roots. The different motifs I create are inspired by feelings that emerge from the rare beauty and constant change of nature. I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Parsons The New School for Design, New York. Since then I have been focusing on creating hand-beaded and woven pieces that explore movement and transcendence of time in relation to the human body/experience.
Through the years of creating and appreciating art, I
realized that what I liked most about it was the process and time it took to create something.
When I see a piece of art I wonder about the time, work and thought behind it. It is not just about
making something beautiful or interesting but how it makes me feel and how much of my heart
goes into it. I learned that loss is something that we all have to deal
with at one point in our lives and we have to accept the inevitable. I began to explore with the unpredictable; dissolving materials, garments coming apart,
transforming, playing around with the thought that nothing lasts forever, everything is transient.
Change and transformation is what I want to explore more through my designs. The excitement
and, yet, sadness of watching your creation come apart is what life is all about, constant
This is only the beginning of my exploration, the unpredictability
