Frida Kahlo Mug

Regular price £12.00 £0.00

Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), Mexican painter and icon.

Kahlo, the person and her art, defy easy definition.

Rather, they lend themselves to ambiguous description. Often volatile and obsessive, Kahlo was alternatively hopeful and despairing.

In her art, Kahlo explored questions of identity, class and gender. She loved dancing and crowds and flirtation and seduction – and was often miserably lonely, begging friends and lovers to visit, not to ‘forget’ her. She had a ferocious and often black sense of humour, as well as a sharp command of wit and metaphor.

The Designer

Scot Burgoyne studied illustration at the University of the West of England, and has exhibited his work in and around Bristol. He has been twice selected for the RWA’s Autumn Exhibition and has had work featured in ‘The Best of British Illustration Annual’.
Scot started decorating china for PRSC in 2012, enjoying the new challenge of working with a three dimensional medium. His one off pieces usually take the clean lines of the china and enhance them using symmetrical and asymmetrical designs. He is also the creator of the ‘I EAT SWANS’ mug.
