Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter who in her short and tragedy-fuelled life produced a huge portfolio of work. She mixed realism with fantasy in her art, the majority of which were self-portraits. She became as symbol of feminism as well as a gay icon. Her naïve folk art represented Mexican popular culture and following her death in the 1950’s her style of art has become increasingly more popular across all demographics. Although the style of the design is Kahlo-esque, the enamel hand-painting derives from a traditional art form that originated in Iran. For happy little pops of colour around your home, this collection of surrealist—inspired designs on a practical stainless steel tumbler just rocks.
