TREE OF LIFE AND DIEGO AND FRIDA GIANTS

Experience local artist Fernando Escartiz’s large-format sculptures at the Opera House. Fernando Escartiz created the Tree of Life “México: Raíz y Fuerza,” which represents the Mexican and Latin American communities in the Bay Area. His large format sculpture of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera was inspired by a portrait painted by Kahlo “where she shows herself small next to Diego Rivera. I see Frida as big, with the same height as the great muralist. That is the reason why, in my interpretation of the portrait, they are both the same size.”
