Print of Shanprimroseart's Acrylic painting 'Poder Feminino' from her Mexico Series. Painted in Puebla, Mexico in July 2019. 200GSM Paper.
“Poder Feminino” translates to “Girl Power” in Spanish.
This piece depicts a magazine cover which pays homage to
all the amazing Mexican female artists, writers, poets,
historical figures and feminists that have fought to make
Mexico the country it is today.
The background collage is made from female-targeted
domestic magazines that I found in vintage stores around
Puebla, some dating back to the 1940’s.
The piece celebrates how far women have come, but also
recognises that there is still a long way to go regarding
women’s rights in both Mexico and the world.
