David Medalla(1942-2020), Artist
Sitter in 2 portraits
Born in Manila in the Philippines, Medalla lived in Britain on and off from the 1960s. He co-founded the Signals Gallery in London in 1964, which presented international kinetic art. His 1964 work Cloud Canyons, which spewed soap suds from wooden boxes, was exhibited at the Tate Gallery's Art & The 60s: This was Tomorrow (2004) show. Medalla continued to make conceptual and collaborative works using everyday objects.
