This is a painting I made to celebrate a couple of my favorite icons: Frida And Dia De Muertos. Two strong pieces of the Mexican culture, the irreverent cult of death we practice during "Dia De Los Muertos" where we mock death with colorful skulls and candy, and Frida, a strong icon who always had Death and pain looming around her.
I combined the two elements of those icons to create a series of paintings of Frida, dressed as "La Catrina", an elegant representation of death, ready to celebrate Dia De Los Muertos in her particular style, on my very own mixed media collage interpretation.
