Frida Kahlo Hoodies
£39.00 inc VAT
The hoodies are made with love from a Mexican lady who is also a traditional Huipul dressmaker (See below)
Frida Kahlo is a Mexican painter well renowned for her unflinching and beautifully coloured self-portraits that explore subjects like identity, the human body, and mortality. Despite her denials, she is frequently referred to as a Surrealist. She explained, “They believed I was a Surrealist, but I wasn’t.” “I’ve never sketched a dream before. “I drew my own picture of reality.”
Kahlo was gravely injured in a bus accident in 1925, and she had to undergo more than 30 surgical operations over the course of her life. During her long rehabilitation, Kahlo taught herself to paint and read a lot, focusing on the Old Masters’ art.
Kahlo’s use of brilliant colours and dramatic symbolism reflects her significant influence on indigenous Mexican culture. She frequently used the monkey as a symbol. Monkeys are emblems of passion in Mexican folklore, but Kahlo depicted them as loving and protecting images. Her work frequently depicts Christian and Jewish themes. She blended aspects of traditional religious Mexican art with surrealism depictions.
The hoodies is made from a plush sportswear fabric, sublimated on a grid so that the artwork on the fabric does not fade. The colours and patterns will always last.
