"This piece was created initially as a mural in my house. Frida has always been an iconic source of inspiration to me so I chose to create a mural as a tribute to her in my own space but wanted to share it with others too since it wasn’t painted in a public space.
When I think about her story, I feel empowered to be a braver and more honest version of myself… I felt like I had a voice through her which gave me such power and drive to keep being me unapologetically and without feeling guilty for not conforming to the status quo in my community. This mural is a self-reminder to never compromise to please others." – Dina Saadi
