the white lighter

Admittedly, this blog and its maintainer have eclectic tastes. "Eclectic," as you might suspect, is a nice way of saying that there is very little intertwining theme to any of this. If you end up liking some (or most) of the things I like, you might find that wondrous.

I seek to post only items which are credited to the originator, be it fine art, photography, tattoos, or writing. If you see something uncredited, do feel free to point it out to me. Also: ask anything. Call me out if I fuck up. Give props if you feel like it. Ask questions. I like internet interaction.

Frida Kahlo - From her sketchbook, 1936

(via gatodesoya)



Minna Salami of Ms. Afropolitan, Pia Cabble, Bumi Thomas, and Cre-8 Lifestyle Center breathtakingly re-created Frida Kahlo for Frida - Female Revolution in Dance & Art, a multi-disciplinary art project.

The photos, which are part of the ongoing exhibition, were taken by Bumi Thomas, whose philosophy is about “transcending cultural boundaries and subverting realities with abstract constructs using photography and music as her mediums of exploration.”

Read more about Minna’s experience via Ms Afropolitan.

the recent fetishization of frida kahlo not only strips her art & life of its revolutionary & political message but cheapens her into an accessory for quirky rookie mag type girls

Good to keep in mind. What kind of fan don’t I want to be?

No tengo dolores. Solamente cansancio… y como es natural muchas veces desesperación. Una desesperación que ninguna palabra puede describir. Sin embargo tengo ganas de vivir.
