The Lotery of Frida

Client: Frida´s Restaurant

Antigua Guatemala 2014

I was commissioned by Frida´s restaurant in Antigua Guatemala, to present them with my "version" of Frida Kahlo´s  portrait. I chose the Mexican Lottery as a visual path -due to our shared love for this wonderful cultural icon- to create it.  This version of the Lottery shows the Mexican artists life through my re-interpretation of her work (plus some stuff I added) in order to show it.  This way, I tell her story, rather than just showing a common portrait of the painter. I did the preliminary sketches on ink and colored them digitally. All rights JP Canale.
