25 Sep Theme of the day: Frida Kahlo

The accident was a point of rupture for Frida, and painting was her rebirth. From this forced confinement was born a new perspective, a restructuring of her life.
Laid out in a plaster cast, stuck in her room, she transmitted all of her energy, her desires, her story, her life, into her painting.

So take your brushes! Fresco or miniature?
Now, faced with the idea of passing weeks locked away, we are getting creative like Frida by customizing shawls with embroidery, hoping to turn them into either cushions or little tableaus. We are taking inspiration from the works of Beatriz Milhazes and Henri Matisse. Simply choose fabric, make a stencil and trace the design onto the fabric, and then we embroider!
