Los Guardianes de la Baja, 2021

Solo show featuring Perro y Arena by Sócrates M Medina
Opens online Saturday, June 26, 2021 *3p PST

'Los Guardianes de la Baja' (Protectors of Baja California) is a collection created in homage to the natural beauty of the flora and fauna of Baja California. The animals depicted are endemic to these areas or depend on it for shelter, survival and reproduction.

It’s also inspired by the work of projects like the Mexican non-profit organization Terra Peninsular who take the role as guardians to protect and conserve the beautiful ecosystem of Baja California. The organization has protected more than 130,000 acres of natural areas in Ensenada, San Quintin, Sierra de San Pedro Mártir and El Rosario. They continue to create safe habitats for the many endangered plants and animals of the region.

20% of the proceeds from all sales will be donated to Terra Peninsularhttps://terrapeninsular.org/

Sócrates M. Medina is a Mexican artist and designer living in Los Angeles, CA. He was born in Tijuana BC Mex and raised in the bicultural region of Tijuana and San Diego. He studied architecture at Cal Poly Pomona and currently works as a designer for an architecture firm in Downtown LA. All of his free time (late nights and weekends) is dedicated to Perro y Arena.

Socrates first took a ceramics class during his last semester of architecture school with a very inspiring artist and professor. It was there where he made his first perrito de arena (dog of sand) and what became the inspiration for Perro y Arena. Soon after graduating he moved to Highland Park in Los Angeles and joined Fahrenheit Ceramics Studio where he is now a member. Perro y Arena is an exploration of Socrates' passion for ceramics and appreciation for the inspiring nature that surrounds him.
