Ever since Edgar Median was a child, he was a creative person in love with color. Due to Edgar’s young health conditions, his parents had to keep him indoors. However, they fostered his creativity with coloring books and watercolor paints…and an artist was born. After moving to the States from his hometown in Tamaulipas, Mexico, Edgar was able to really develop his skills. Edgar’s art teacher took him under her wing and fueled his passion for creating art. Now Edgar has transformed as an artist and his work reflects his journey. Edgar describes his artwork as a fusion of his two cultures: It’s colorful, bold, and reflects his lively Latin American heritage. Yet, the contemporary influences of American artistry are reflected in his work. To Edgar, Houston is a city full of opportunities, because it has given him a platform as an immigrant, a person of color and a member of the LGBTQ+ community. It’s very important to Edgar for kids to have someone to look up to that looks like them, and he hopes he can be that role model.
