About

'Frida as a Knight' is a powerful figurative abstract oil painting on canvas by emerging British artist - Melinda Matyas. Its is a portrait of a modern surrealist artist from Mexico - Frida Kahlo. Although this expressionist painting has an abstract style, the vibrant yellow and orange figure of a woman shows clearly on a strong blue and green background. The contemporary painting will be shipped directly from the artist's current studio in London, UK along with a Certificate of Authenticity, signed and dated by the artist. You will receive the painting set on wooden stretchers, ready to be hung on a wall so you can enjoy it in your room right away. Melinda is a London based artist whose work focuses on the conceptual understanding of the philosophical questions and solutions emerging out of human experience, both individual and collective. She is interested in the present and the past, her paintings explore different points of view on existence. In her creative process colour and texture are important elements, as well as the deconstruction of forms which allows her to find an equilibrium between figuration and abstraction. The artist favorites abstract portraits in her works showing people in an abstracted, non-representational way when reality (as we know it) becomes confusing. Expressive color aesthetic and dynamic paint application help creating surreal, magical worlds, adding additional conceptual layer to the art.
