"Txiki" is a documentary structured around the artist Txiki Medina (1958) and focused on the creative process of an oil painting. In order to assemble his peculiar geometry, the artist takes inspiration from urban spaces and spoiled aspects of nature, places filled with elements which, rather than sought, have been encountered.

"Txiki" ist ein Dokumentarfilm über den Künstler Txiki Medina (1958) und konzentriert sich auf den kreativen Prozess hinter einem Ölgemälde. Um seine eigentümliche Geometrie zusammenzustellen, lässt sich der Künstler von urbanen Räumen und der Vergänglichkeit der Natur inspirieren, Orte mit Elementen, auf die er eher stößt, als sie zu suchen.
