I portrayed Frida as how I feel that she would approach her self portrait in the modern times, as a celebration of her life in a Mexican themed pop art collage.
Frida's portrait is prodimently finished with oils and embellished with acrylic and coloured chalk. The intense background creating an illusion of a two dimensional piece with the inclusion of two parrots flying inward, towards Frida.
Mixed media: Heat pressed sublimation, coloured chalk, charcoal, gold leaf, acrylic, Lumiere gold paint on 6mm upcycled mdf wood panel.
Original size: 31" x 28" - Includes black ornate frame with a gold finished trim.
