  • this is by far the best one of the remake series
    from picking frida ( and especialy that painting ) to realization of the final remake.
    I realy like the reference to painting the bodypaint gives in the foto
    & this faint sense of erotic it gives you
    which is also always there when looking at kahlo
    she also had this weird aura around her,
    which is drawing you closer and at the same time pushes you away

    claire neatly caught that aspect.

    reminds me I still have to take a photograph sooner or later: in my neighbourhood there’s one guy living in an antique flat.. in his eating room there’s a wall full of frida kahlo paintings (around 20), it’s always odd walking by the window each evening.

  • one of my favourite submissions for sure – would love to see a photo of his wall sounds amazing

  • fiorella

    i love it!

“Happy Breakfast” by Artist Gary Card

“Happy Breakfast” is a psychedelic zine by set designer and artist Gary Card. Filled with colourful and chaotic images that blur the line between cute and creepy, what began as a commission for Japanese magazine Them, has turned into something of an ongoing experiment thanks to London-based publishers Katie Bagley and Ferry Gouw of New World International.
