May | Frida Artistry Series Winner...
We are so excited to announce our first winner of the Frida Artisty Series Contest is ....
While you enjoy your margarita, get to know the artist behind this month's Frida Kahlo inspired glass.
Get in touch:
Where are you from?
How long have you lived in Atlanta/ Surrounding Areas?
I was born in the Atlanta suburbs and I moved back to the area 8 years ago. Before moving back, I lived in Savannah while getting getting my Illustration degree from SCAD.
What inspired you to submit art for this project?
I've always loved the art of Frida Kahlo, and I love a good margarita.
Please describe your artwork. What does the piece mean to you?
For this piece, I was inspired by Frida's love of traditional Mexican folk arts, especially indigenous embroidery. Inspired by native Otomi embroidery, I created a portrait of Frida featuring native wildlife and plant motifs.
If you win, how would you spend $500 at Pure (a month of free tacos)?
If I won a month of free tacos, first I would freak out, but then I would love to invite my friends for an epic Taco Tuesday! The puerco al pastor are my absolute fave, but I don't discriminate when it comes to tacos.
