Why Pop Art?
Pop Art is a fascinating art movement that emerged in the mid-1950s. It celebrates popular culture, everyday objects, and famous personalities, using bold colors, patterns, and familiar imagery. Frida Kahlo, an iconic Mexican artist known for her self-portraits and unique style, is the perfect subject for this workshop. By fusing the essence of Pop Art with Frida’s powerful persona, you’ll have the opportunity to create a visually striking and emotionally engaging piece.
