Competition Time at Tilt

For International Women’s Day we decided we would run our first ever competition here at Tilt! As we have so much art available we thought we should narrow the prize down to a print of an iconic woman in history. We still had lots to choose from but after some thought we decided to go with one of our lovely colourful Frida Kahlo prints by artist Nettsch.

Frida con amigos by Nettsch

The Story of Frida….

Frida Kahlo was an iconic Mexican artist, born to a German father and Mexican mother, she grew up in Mexico. Unfortunately she was disabled early on in life when she caught polio but still went on to become a promising medical student until a traffic accident when she was 18 left her in constant pain and bed ridden for months. After this she threw herself into her favourite past time of painting.

Further on in life Kahlo joined the Mexican Communist Party and married fellow Mexican artist Diego Riviera and at this stage was mainly known as his wife not as an artist in her own right. It wasn’t until 1938 that she got her first solo exhibition in New York which as a great success!

Self Portrait with Necklace by Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo‘s later work was best described as Mexican Folk Art due to it’s “fantasy, naivety, and fascination with violence and death” (extract from Oxford Art Online). Frida is now thought as a important feminist and LGBT movement activist. Her art is shown all over the world and her residences are opened to the public as museums. Although she only lived to the age of 47 her influence on art and feminism is so important, which is why she is celebrated across the globe.

Frida and Diego Riviera by Frida Kahlo

Notable work by Frida Kahlo includes, Memory,the Heart (1937), the Two Frida’s (1939), Necklace & Hummingbird (1940). andThe Broken Column (1944).
