Information provided by the Artist: Based in Los Angeles, Erick Medel was born in Puebla, Mexico in 1992. He holds an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design. Embroidering denim with an industrial sewing machine, Medel’s works touch on everyday life in Los Angeles, particularly those living and working in Boyle Heights and the city’s East Side. The painstaking craft of his embroidery is slow and meticulous, a complement to the snapshot-like scenes it depicts. Equal parts documentarian and synthesizer, Medel strings together his own experiences as well as those of his family and his community into stitched scenes of vibrant color, tactile textures, and labored surfaces which convey his strong sense of identification with and care for his environment.
