I am releasing limited edition A4 prints of 6 of the ‘Misfit Women’ paintings that I created for Women’s History Month, including this painting of Frida Kahlo.
Who is Frida Kahlo?
Frida Kahlo is an icon. We all know her today for her colourful self-portraits, and work inspired deeply by Mexican folklore. But what you might not know is that she was known predominantly as “Diego Rivera’s wife” until the 1970’s, when her work was “rediscovered” by art historians and political activists.
What’s most striking about her work, particularly for the time, was her unwaveringly real depiction of the female form and experience. She was never about creating the ideal.
