NEW DESIGNS AND OLD FAVOURITES LOADED!
I mean this lady! Apart from the beautiful picture this is, this Mexican painter was strong-willed, fiesty and a magnificent artist. She was taken seriously in a time when woman weren't really supposed to be artists and achieved a lot of success as an artist. She painted some scenes inspired by nature, but is especially known for the amount of portraits and self portraits she painted. She said she was often alone and painted the person she knows best - herself. Her paintings had a lot of autobiographical elements (she painted what she knew) mixed with fantasy, giving a surreal feel to it.
Through her art she explored various issues, like identity, postcolonialism, gender, class, and race in the Mexican society she was a part of.
This 40 x 50cm version of an image of her is vibrant and boldly coloured, like her and her paintings. It is a very challenging one, with 26 colours and lots of details. Each box contains a stretched, printed and numbered canvas, paint, brushes and a page detailing the numbers for an extra reference.
