Animating the Arcella district of Padua, Frida is the third work in a series of pieces dedicated to the University of Padua 800th Anniversary.
As part of the Universe Universis Patavina Libertas Arcellatown Project, artist Mike 128 unveiled his portrait of Frida Khalo, giving new life to the Enel electric tower (via Fornace Morandi, Padova).
Known today as a Mexican icon, Frida Khalo was a social and political revolutionary, whose artistic experimentation led her to become an international symbol of female empowerment.
The Universa Universis Patavina Libertas project is linked to this work not only due to the universal art that Frida Khalo represents but as a homage to all women.
The artist Mike 128 presents Frida as his first figurative street artwork to the city of Padua, taking him out of his comfort zone as a writer.
Dedicated to 8 centuries of the University’s history, Frida is reazlized under the patronage of the University of Padua and is part of a series of artistic works to revamp 8 electrical substations in the Arcella district with a renewed beauty. The series was made possible thanks to the contribution and sponsorship of the University of Padua.
