Homenaje a Frida Kahlo

The magic of genius. What would the world be without the intellectual energies that produce art? Frida Kahlo is one of the 20th century's magnificent powers and Dolldom pays tribute to her work and legacy.

Julian S. Kalinowski and Liz Cole join forces and geniuses to give birth to this most sensational creation: a Sylvain doll - painted, coiffed, and dressed to honor the Mexican painter in some of her most iconic self-portraits.

“Take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are a bourbon biscuit.” - Frida Kahlo

“Nothing is worth more than laughter. It is strength to laugh and to abandon oneself, to be light. Tragedy is the most ridiculous thing.” - Frida Kahlo

“I wish I could do whatever I liked behind the curtain of “madness”. Then: I’d arrange flowers, all day long, I’d paint; pain, love and tenderness, I would laugh as much as I feel like at the stupidity of others, and they would all say: “Poor thing, she’s crazy!” (Above all I would laugh at my own stupidity.) I would build my world which while I lived, would be in agreement with all the worlds. The day, or the hour, or the minute that I lived would be mine and everyone else’s - my madness would not be an escape from “reality”.” - Frida Kahlo

“Traté de ahogar mis penas... pero las condenadas aprendieron a nadar.” - Frida Kahlo

“No moon, sun, diamond, hands —
fingertip, dot, ray, gauze, sea,
pine green, pink glass, eye,
mine, eraser, mud, mother, I am coming.”  - Frida Kahlo
