Portrait art with geisha inspirations by Patrushka

An ongoing Geisha art series.

A Frida Kahlo as a geisha,  adorned and embellished with the botanical trappings she so loved. The character on her forehead reads “flower” and thorny curvy entanglements hang from her ears. A beautiful aloe plant spikes up in the foreground.

“I paint flowers so they will not die…”

– Frida Kahlo –

Many of Kahlo’s iconic self-portraits include imagery of foliage and flowers from her garden. In addition to her traditional Mexican clothing and jewelry made from shells, stones or bones, as well as her pet birds and monkeys, she frequently incorporated plants like “elephant-ear” leaves from the aroid (Araceae) family and white-haired “old-man cactus” (viejo), or other cacti and an assortment of flowers.
