Frida Kahlo is in the United States

Standard

Luis Velazquez

The Mexican artist Frida Kahlo was such an important painter not only in her country, but in the whole world due to her fantastic work made through her different paints that express lots of her life.

In the Naval Training Center at Liberty Station, San Diego, there is an exhibition of more than 123 replicas of the real paints made by Kahlo. The idea is having the replicas just as she could make it during her life.

Mexican art in the Unites States

Standard

Luis Velazquez

Sometimes people get focused just in the political issues that come every day and forget about all the great things that exist out of those things. Art can be an example.

In the United States, in the Mexican Museum, there is a marvelous collection from the Mexican artist José Guadalupe Posada. All his paints (or at least the one from the permanent collection of the Museum) talks about the national items coming from Mexico and are all expressed in a very colorful way.

It would be great if all of us just forget about the “reality” for a while and try to see further and an amazing way to do it is through art. So let’s give art a chance and enjoy paintings like the ones from Mexico that have lots of things to say and express.
