Frida Khalo in Chapala

Digital Painting: Frida Khalo in Chapala

About the Painting

This is Garr’s whimsical depiction of an event that never happened in the real world, although in Garr’s world...

As he always like to say, “Anything is possible with art... artistic license is a wonderful thing!

This is a juxtaposition of two influences in Garr's life:

Frida Kahlo is a Mexican treasure. Born in 1907, she was an important painter who, along with her famous muralist husband Diego Rivera, sought through their art to help define the Mexican identity. As a proponent of surrealism, both her work, her goals, and her story have always fascinated Garr.

Chapala is a town in the Mexican state of Jalisco, and is located on the shore of Lake Chapala (the largest inland body of water in Mexico). This town is important to Garr because it is where he lives!

As a result, Garr's imagination has conjured up Frida Kahlo visiting the Malecón in Chapala. Behind her you can see the mountains and boats on the lake, and the archway for the “Rinconcito de Amor” (Little Corner of Love) on the pier.
