I painted my little child big eyes Frida Kahlo like a big red mermaid on 1915. His black cat with soft shapes represents Diego Rivera. Frida loved Diego so much, that I could not resist and I painted her an enlarged belly.
she is now able to swim and fly because she has a fish tail and two beautiful wings.
The red color in the bust is perfect because it’s the color of passion. I chose red and blue because of the colors of Casa Azul. I appreciated the video below that talk of her house, turned into a museum.
The Phrase on bust
The phrase on bust is a wonderful message from Frida Kahlo. I think she felt very different from the world around her.
“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.” Frida
