Distinction Gallery’s new group exhibition ‘A Few Small Nips: A Tribute to Frida Kahlo’ is showing from 4 November – 6 December 2014. The exhibition curated by June Leeloo showcases digital and traditional artwork by leading figurative and surrealist artists whom pay tribute to the late Mexican artist Friday Kahlo in their own unique and deeply personal way.
“Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter, born in Coyoacán. Perhaps best known for her self-portraits, Kahlo’s work is remembered for its ‘pain and passion’, and its intense, vibrant colors. Her work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous tradition, and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form. Frida has been described as: ‘…one of history’s grand divas…a tequila-slamming, dirty joke-telling smoker, bi-sexual that hobbled about her bohemian barrio in lavish indigenous dress and threw festive dinner parties for the likes of Leon Trotsky, poet Pablo Neruda, Nelson Rockefeller, and her on-again, off-again husband, muralist Diego Rivera.” ~ Distinction Gallery
