Event description: “Frida’s New York” features sequential artworks from Felipe Galindo/Feggo’s project in progress, including drawings, storyboards and cartoons for the animation short of the same title, to be completed in 2014.

These humorous works were inspired by Frida Kahlo’s visits to New York in the 1930’s and 1940’s, by the popular aesthetics of the period, and by the intertwining of Mexican culture in contemporary New York. Using drawing, watercolor and digital collage, the artist creates imaginary narratives about Kahlo’s life and the impact that New York City made on her art and life.
