(photo via Florence and the Machine facebook)
You must know I'm seriously digging this photo... Florence Welch paying tribute to one of my biggest inspirations: Frida Kahlo. This photo was taken in a mexican restaurant at Las Vegas.
Look closely at the image, the walls are filled with her portraits and paintings.. I think I'm on a new mission, which is getting my room or studio or any wall in my house to look like that.
Feel free to send me Frida Kahlo portraits, paintings, magnets or postage stamps for the collection. :)
This is what Florence said about Frida in an interview by LAS VEGAS SUN:
-D.C.: What do you like to do when you’re in Las Vegas? You mentioned onstage that you were downtown.
-F.W.: Yeah, we went downtown, we went to a vintage store. It was amazing! I managed to find a Mexican restaurant, which had all these pictures of Frida Kahlo everywhere. I am obsessed with her. It was like finding Frida. It was magical.
-D.C.: What do you like about Frida? How do you relate to her?
-F.W.: I love her style, and I think she captured so much strength and fragility in her portraits and the quandary of being feminine and mixing up these ideas of masculine and feminine and the real and the unreal and the pain. She was an amazing artist.
