Honouring the Iconic Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo | digital painting
Honouring the iconic Frida Kahlo.  Finding a unique way to capture her essence wasn't easy, given the abundance of stunning Frida portraits out there. Eventually, I decided to depict her in a Day of the Dead makeup, as I love the aesthetic and it feels like a fitting tribute to this remarkable artist. 

Frida Kahlo's talent and unwavering determination have always inspired me. Despite the harrowing accident she endured at just 18 years old, she continued to create breathtaking art, often painting from her bed. 

Frida is often considered a feminist artist. Her artwork and life experiences have greatly influenced feminist movements and discussions. Through her paintings, Kahlo explored themes of identity, gender, and the female experience. She portrayed her own struggles, physical pain, and emotions, challenging traditional gender roles and societal expectations. How could I not be an admirer 🥰 .
