About For the Love of Frida (From the Artist)

This painting depicts Frida Kahlo in abstract.

I used soft pastels to show the vibrancy of her legacy and how people worldwide are united by her story.

The image is without eyes because more than her eyes, her brows were most memorable.

Additionally, the viewer can on their own, imagine her gaze.

For the Love of Frida was featured in the news to promote our local art fair. It is definitely a conversation starter.

About the Artist

Cheryl Vargas was born in Gary, Indiana, and grew up in both Chicago’s Cabrini Green Housing Projects and

in a little brown house in Valparaiso Indiana. She married and returned to Chicago’s Wrigleyville where she raised three sons and ultimately moved to Oak Park, IL.

A self-taught artist with a BFA in graphic arts from Concordia University in River Forest, IL, she is the Creative in Chief at Studio 928, which is the culmination of many years of melding together art, technology, and teaching into a business she and her clients love.

For the Love of Frida was painted indoors, while listening to jazz. “I felt an element of risk while creating it.” It’s an awesome tribute to her and a great gift for the Frida collector.

A painter, sculptor, graphic artist, and event planner she loves portraiture—primarily acrylics, but also pastels, graphite and watercolor.

Her sculpted art brings out the beauty in the very things which pollute and clutter our environment, primarily plastics and containers.

Her work life includes promoting Studio 928, teaching, and dispelling the “starving artists” myth. Cheryl enjoys spending time with her sons and her grandchildren, traveling, and visiting with friends.

Studio 928
