Studio 905 brings back icon of Mexican art through eyes of local artist Son of the Moon.
Atlanta, April 27, 2015. The energy and passion that characterize Frida Kahlo will return to Midtown Atlanta through a series of paintings, drawings and art installations inspired by the beloved Mexican artist.!
Studio 905 will feature local artist and designer Son of the Moon, who has created a series titled “In the Time of the Butterflies,” inspired by the photography series “El Baño de Frida Kahlo” by Graciela Iturbe.
This series features several objects that had been stored for over 30 years in one of the bathrooms of the Blue House, Kahlo’s home. Son of the Moon, influenced by these objects, visually represents Kahlo’s emotional and artistic evolution through a symbol, the butterfly.
