Welcome to the Jungle

This is a piece that’s been marinating for some time - after hearing Welcome to the Jungle by Tash Sultana I instantly needed to illustrate what I felt from it, soon enough Frida Kahlo was coming to mind. I didn’t have much knowledge of Frida but knew her iconic look, after watching the documentary Frida it really showed her rebellious nature, especially for her generation. She was fiery, against the grain, dark mind fuelled by tragedy and pain. 

This is a piece with layers of detail, colour and meaning - something I will be taking great care with, to not only show the smokey sounds of Tash but the intensity of the life and attitude of Frida. Enjoy the sights and sounds of Welcome to the Jungle x
