José Medina Galeote

Conceptual art

José Medina Galeote is an artist who uses painting and other techniques to reflect on the creative process. In his work he first establishes themes, sometimes stimulating, sometimes provoking, in which the roles of artist and spectator are interchangeable.

In his deep reflection on art in general and painting in particular, José Medina Galeote undertakes an optical experiment that builds a particular aesthetic which distinguishes it, both stylistically and in terms of the ideas it carries. In his work, there are clear references to the minimalist and conceptual art of the sixties as he raises the question of the very concept of reality representation.

the furniture and decoration that adorn our homes."

Work of art under your feet

The collaboration of José Médina Galeote and the design teams of Forbo Flooring Systems gave birth to an unique collection of flooring in which the artists’ creations are given a new dimension through the medium of flooring.

By bringing his works of art right under our feet, José Médina Galeote explores new perspectives on various textures. Thanks to high definition printing techniques, Forbo Flooring Systems can bring the creations of José Médina Galeote to life on Flotex flocked textile and different types of vinyl flooring.

A colourful and strange figure, posing very attentively in front of a mosaic with Andalusian reminiscences, clearly inspired by the
Alhambra in Granada. This emblematic character of José Medina Galeote’s universe is quietly observing us and seems to be waiting for us to address him. In a way he is here to say welcome and introduce this unique collection.

"This character seems to want to invite you to discover him and to visit the space that surrounds him."
José Medina Galeote

Flotex Galeote Albayzin
Flotex Galeote Patchwork


This network of coloured lines simulates an almost intimate handwriting. The writing appears as a means of telling a story, which
everyone can explore and make their own.
By generating a new creative space full of possibilities, José Medina Galeote seeks to embellish our interior, while inviting us to reflect on the creative role of the human being in their environment.

"I tried to bring one of the most natural facets of the human being, writing, to a different substrate."
José Medina Galeote


Writing is a reoccurring theme and a constant in the José Medina Galeote collection. It is one of the most personal facets of being human: it is our way of transferring ideas or thoughts and making them tangible. In this case, writing becomes drawing and vice versa; in a kind of game where the borders are abolished.

"Writing becomes drawing and drawing becomes writing."
José Medina Galeote

Vinyl Galeote Scribble
Flotex Galeote Chalkboard


Like the layout of a city, this brightly coloured geometric decor takes us into a unique visual landscape and invites us to move.

"Looking at the ground has never been so fun and intuitive."
José Medina Galeote


Lines drawn with Chinese ink, form a primitive yet contemporary result that adapts naturally to any type of space. This is perhaps the greatest challenge of this collection: to transpose vertical art into a work that is displayed at your feet.

"The potential of a line to be concrete by the brush."
José Medina Galeote

Vinyl Galeote Angles
Vinyl Galeote Sign


What is more personal than a fingerprint? It defines us in our uniqueness and makes us different from other human beings. To explain his own vision of art, José Medina Galeote relies on the strength that emerges from his linear structures and continues to explore this way of communicating with his audience.

"My interest in telling the story of my painting lies in how to indicate, how to construct it."
José Medina Galeote


A game of curves and reliefs sublimated by a black background, where the volumes seem to emerge, making the perception of the floor unique. This perspective and illusion creates a resolutely contemporary look.

"Bring art into the home, onto the floor, and let it interact fully with the furniture and decoration that adorn our homes."
José Medina Galeote

Vinyl Galeote Dimension
Flotex Galeote Coralline


This design evokes the warm and familiar nature of wool, with a nod to the Baroque movement. The exuberance of the forms and the contrast of the colours build an aesthetic effect that is intended to create a feeling of well-being.

"I have constantly thought and dreamed about how I could walk, stroll or live in these environments and how they could generate total well-being."
José Medina Galeote


Although José Medina Galeote plays with lines and their randomness, he is also interested in form and structure.
Here there are references to both the natural world and to a wider geography, as this design invites you to stroll and daydream.

"The incorporation of organic meaning into my artistic practice!"
José Medina Galeote
