Born in 1950 and raised in East Austin, Medrano missed much of his education because he was a migrant worker.  He writes, “I started the series Barrio Scenes so that my grandchildren could see what East Austin used to look like . . . hopefully through my art people will remember the struggle our raza went through. I have a lot more to paint.”
