The Mark Miller Gallery is pleased to present “Frida Kahlo’s New York” an exhibition by award-winning cartoonist and illustrator Felipe Galindo / Feggo, from May 7 through June 7, 2015.  

The  exhibition  features  works  on  paper  and sequential artworks from Felipe Galindo / Feggo’s project “Frida Kahlo’s New York,” as well as preparatory drawings and storyboards for the animation in progress of the same title.“Frida Kahlo’s New York” is inspired by Kahlo’s five visits to New York City in the 1930's and 1940's, and presents  whimsical  narratives  featuring  Kahlo  in New York City, and scenes that imagine the impact that the Big Apple might have had on Frida’s art and life.

This project celebrates Frida Kahlo’s artistic vision, her passionate and complex life and the vitality of the City of New York in past and the present times.  “Frida Kahlo’s New York” presents a unique, humorous take on Frida Khalo and salutes the much anticipated exhibition "Frida Kahlo, Art, Garden Life" opening in mid May at the New York Botanical Garden in the Bronx.
