Frida Baa-hlo

I am excited to be able to share my designs for the Shaun in the City sculpture trail, starting with 'Frida Baa-hlo'.  Based on the Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo and the portraits she painted of herself with her pet monkeys and parrots sitting on her shoulders. 
Shaun in the City is a 'trail of two cities', where 120 giant sculptures of Shaun the Sheep, created by artists, celebrities and designers, will go on display across London and Bristol, before going to auction to raise money for children in hospitals across the UK. 
Here are some photos of Frida in progress:

I particularly enjoyed painting her distictive plaited hair-style and the flowers she wore in it. 
 Frida Baa-hlo will be displayed in a prime location at the BFI [British Film Institute] on the Southbank in London from 28th March until 25th May 2015.
