Frida Kahlo Mug

Regular price $16.95

“Nunca pinté mis sueños, sólo pinté mi propia realidad.”
This vibrant mug depicts a collage featuring Mexican folk painter Frida Kahlo, seen wearing traditional indigenous Tehuana clothing. The quote, printed in both Spanish and English is part of a response Frida once gave to an essay accompanying an exhibition of her work in 1938, where her style was described as Surrealism. "They thought I was a Surrealist but I wasn’t. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality."
