Efren Medina has a thirty year trajectory in the plastic arts. Medina studied at Nicaragua's School of the Arts, under the tutelage of Rodrigo Penalba. As an early member of the Praxis Group (that formed in the early 1970's)-- Efren Medina has been instrumental to the formation of a Nicaraguan Modern Art School. The image of the 'Cadejo'-- stems from a folkloric myth (unique to Nicaragua). The 'Cadejo' appears in times of distress and crisis-- and helps for example, the wayward get home and helps the injured to get prompt care and assistance. For many Nicaraguans, the 'Cadejo' is a deeply felt presence. Efren Medina has been depicting the image of the 'Cadejo' for over two decades. Other noted Nicaraguan painters include: Armando Morales, Alejandro Arostegui, June Beer, Manuel Garcia, Arnoldo Guillen, Genaro Lugo, Carlos Montenegro, David Ocon, Roger Perez de la Rocha, Leoncio Saenz, Orlando Sobalvarro, Luis Urbina and Leonel Vanegas
