FRIDA GEORGIA YAYOI
For my senior thesis project I examined the lives of Frida Kahlo, Georgia O'Keeffe and Yayoi Kusama. I wanted to create a small book showcasing these artists’ lives, and try to understand how their personal experiences informed their work. I connected letters and diary entries along with a few pieces of their artwork in hopes of bringing viewers closer to these icons. Each chapter seamlessly connects to the next with a letter one artist wrote to the next. This book shows the extraordinary resilience of these women, and reveals their humanity as daughters, sisters, friends and partners. Enjoy!
