This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Octavio Medellin was born in San Luis Potosi, Mexico in 1907.  After moving to San Antonio, Texas, Medellin attended the San Antonio School of Art.  Then moved to Chicago for classes at the Chicago Art Institute.  In 1929 he traveled to Mexico to study native and primitive crafts.  Upon returning to San Antonio along with a small group of artist, Medellin started the La Vallita Art Gallery where he taught sculpture from 1934-1937.

In 1938 he became the sculpture in residence at North Texas State College in Denton, Texas for 5 years.  After World War II, where his talents helped with the making of airplanes, Medellin returned to teaching this time at the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts for 21 years.  By 1966 he had established a sculpture studio at Mendochino Art Center at Medonchino, California and the Medellin School of Sculpture where he continued to teach classes until he retired and moved to Bandera, Texas.
