The Frida Kahlo Influence
August 13, 2016
Yes Houzz, you are spot on! Frida was certainly an influence in this project I did back in 2006. Frida Kahlo is a source of inspiration to so many woman around the globe. What an incredible woman she was. Thank you for featuring my project on your Frida article.
“Sydneysiders and visitors are currently enjoying a rare opportunity to revel in the masterpieces of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo at the moment, this time alongside the work of her husband Diego Rivera at an Art Gallery of NSW exhibition called Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera: from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection. The exhibition has already attracted one of the gallery’s highest-ever advance ticket sales prior to opening, and runs until 9 October, 2016.
According to Nicholas Chambers, senior art curator at the Art Gallery of NSW, Kahlo’s style “turned inwards and represented Mexicanidad through an exploration of her personal identity.” From the flowers in her hair, to her iconic monobrow and colourful jewellery, Kahlo’s artworks represent a strong, influential female figure. In fact, so popular is this feminist icon of Mexican 20th-century art that she has influenced style across the globe. Take a look at how Houzzers are finding inspiration from the colour, abstract beauty and mystery behind one of Mexico’s most famous artists within their own homes.”
