Welcome to 2023, thanks for joining me again at Bec Schopen ART Studio. This year has started off brilliantly with a visit to the Sydney Festival's Frida Kahlo - The Life Of An Icon immersion. It was an explosion of colour, music and creative interactive activities. If you want to learn about Frida it is a comprehensive account of her life, if you already know all about Frida it still has lots to offer, especially beautiful photos and an incredible VR experience.
Frida Kahlo is an inspiration to so many artist because she managed to harness the love of painting for herself, not necessarily to sell or exhibit. She painted what she knew, which was Frida and that is true authenticity and bravery. I try everyday to paint what I live and know, this is where unique art comes from. It may not be for everyone but is my truth and experience.
Sydney based mixed media artist.
