I was only recently introduced to this print of Frida Kahlo by my husband and I was instantly mesmerised. I love everything about it. The mix of old and new. The vintage feel of the colours with the contrast of the tattoos and Daft Punk t-shirt on Frida. It is so modern and funky yet seems to evoke feelings of whimsy and fairy tales. I had to know more. I quick google search with my sister (who is equally obsessed) led us to find the amazing artist Fab Ciraolo and a whole gallery of all his artwork. Wow! We are all absolutely hooked and are frantically putting in orders to get some of his prints.
Fab Ciraolo is a Chilean artist from Santiago. His pieces combine elements of nostalgic pop culture and other icons with a fantastical almost science fiction element to them. Incorporating classic cartoon characters, fairytale favourites and popular icons, Ciraolo creates compelling artworks that are both old wordly and modern.
Here’s a gallery of some of my favourite art works- hope you love them as much as I do. x
