MY PerFECT HOUS(e)ton: Montrose
In his personal studio, Edgar almost always has a smile on his face. To create his next masterpiece, Edgar’s bare hands pull from dozens of paint colors, sprawling them across a wide-open canvas using a variety of application methods.
Several photos show Edgar leading art classes for hospitalized children. In one photo, a young girl’s wheelchair has several birthday balloons tied to the handle, a palette in front of her.

Voyage Houston: Meet Edgar Medina
As with any great artist, his journey was not a simple one. Edgar opted after high school for a “sensible” career choice and pursued a job in the dental industry for eight years. It wasn’t until a visit in 2007 to the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan that his artistic voice again spoke to him in a way that he could no longer ignore. He returned home to Houston, TX, a changed man, ready to pursue the dream of making a life for himself as a successful artist.

"I am so blessed to be able to give back to my community through my work," Medina says. "It is so satisfying to see the proceeds from the sale of an Edgar Medina original go to help a child with cancer, provide medical services to low-income teens, or send a child with muscular dystrophy to camp."
