Drawing inspiration from the groundbreaking exhibit Frida Kahlo: Appearance Can Be Deceiving at Brooklyn Museum, Miguel Ayuso’s mural focuses on Frida Kahlo as a dreamer. Originally from Oaxaca, Mexico, Ayuso has lived and worked in Brooklyn for over 10 years. At the foundation of all of Ayuso’s works is an incessant desire to play, re-invent and create whimsical imagery, which can be seen in his work as a graphic designer, illustrator, and muralist. For this mural, Ayuso depicts a static image of Frida on the left-hand side of the composition with her iconic updo and flowers. The flowers start to take flight as they turn into birds in an Escher-esque mutation flying over mountains, Aztec pyramids, city skyscrapers, and cactus plants all familiar elements in Frida’s hometown of Mexico City. On the other side of the mural, Frida is being observed and protected by one of the many animals she loved, a Xolo, a scared dog in ancient Mexica (Aztec) culture.
