The Life and Art of David Medalla
A monograph on David Medalla from the ArteFilipino series published by Vibal Foundation. Edited by Purissima Benitez-Johannot, this book immerses us in the work of David Medalla (b. 1942), a pioneering Filipino artist based in London who has been part of several of major artistic movements of the last fifty years. As Medalla himself continues to defy classification and transcend borders of genre and nationality, his acclaimed kinetic, avant-garde, participatory, and performance art pieces explore and call into question established notions of art and creation. This book includes a selection of photos documenting both Medalla’s works and life, and essays written both by art historians and his close artist friends, such as Adam Nankervis and Guy Brett.
