Viva la Vida - a Frida Calavera

This calavera represents Frida Kahlo's art and her life, how they intertwined.  Through her artwork she showed the world her pain, her vulnerability and her strength as well.  It is titled, "Viva la Vida", the title of Frida's last work of art.

Frida's Heart

Here is my latest work titled, "Frida's Heart".  This calavera depicts Frida Kahlo rising from her chair in order to offer her "heart" to someone.  This is an all hand-made papier mache calavera, it took about 3 weeks to make the entire scene.  She is on her way to the Corazon Gallery at Olvera Street for an art show.

Frida in Bed - a new calavera for 2014

Continuing my papier mache dia de los muertos journey for 2014.  Just finished this calavera scene, it's Frida Kahlo in her bed with her body cast and sugar skull.  This calavera is modeled after an actual picture of Frida in her home the Casa Azul.
