One of the 20th century's most original artists, Frida Kahlo often incorporated themes from Mexican folk art while bluntly recording on canvas many of her personal passions. Details from four of the artist's extraordinary paintings have been adapted for this ready-to-wear tattoo collection: the provocative Self-Portrait with Monkey, The Little Deer, Diego and I, and Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace. Sure to be prized by tattoo enthusiasts, these large, haunting images will also appeal to lovers of fine art and admirers of this important artist.
Best known for her striking self-portraits, Frida Kahlo (1907-54) ranks among Mexico's most prominent artists. Her surrealistic paintings abound in symbolism, drawing upon her native country's folk traditions and reflecting her own turbulent existence. "I never paint dreams or nightmares," she asserted, "I paint my own reality." With the Neomexicanismo movement of the 1980s, which celebrated the values of contemporary Mexican culture, Kahlo's work began receiving wider recognition. International exhibitions of her paintings followed, exciting an ongoing interest in her passionate life, which has inspired biographies, an acclaimed film, and an opera.
