Be it as a dynamic home-maker, an active working professional, a dedicated mother and wife or the philanthropic giver – there is no denying that women today have trumped at every role they play. Celebrating the power and strength of women is two creative projects: one that merges influential figures through art and another that promotes heroines via comic strips.
When it comes to singing the praises of women who have helped make a difference to our world these two very different projects do so with panache, even if some of those women are fantastical… Hybrid Heroine
From March 14 to 23, Australian, Dubai-based artist Jennifer Stelco is bringing her impressive Hybrid Heroine collection to the Cartoon Art Gallery.
Hybrid Heroine is a jovial celebration of influential women throughout history. The collection is comprised of 25 unique digital images, each highlighting two influential female figures whose images are morphed together – Pink blends with Pocahontas, Princess Diana is paired with Motown group The Supremes, while Lady Gaga joins artist Frida Kahlo – hence the hybrid.
The result is a genius, and frankly unique, way to promote the skills and qualities of each of the admirable ladies. Inspired by the art? You can buy the pieces during the exhibition.
The Cartoon Art Gallery, 4b Street, Al Quoz 1, Dubai. (04) 3266467.
