Sussex New Brunswick- Don’t Just Pass Through

 

 

Queen Frida

I start with a car roof reflection of Elicsr’s wall portrait of Frida Kahlo.

Artist: Elicsr

Mexican artist Frida Kahlo (1907 – 1954) is remembered for her self-portraits, and paintings filled with bold colors & Mexican and indigenous culture .

Artist: Elicsr

I believe the title “Queen” comes from the idea that she is the original”Selfies Queen”. This article from “The Guardian”  Frida Kahlo: feminist, selfie queen, queer icon and style muse of 2017 is very interesting.

Artist: Elicsr

In 2006, Frida Kahlo self-portrait, Roots, was sold for $5.62 million at Sotheby’s, NYC.

This painting is quite old for alley art. Possibly 10 years. It has survived in a heavily tagged area.
