Frida Kahlo 3D

From Portrait To 3D Print: The Frida Kahlo Playset

Frida Kahlo, the world famous Mexican artist, has been brought to life – through 3D printing technology by London-based artist Eva Sbaraini and Marco Autilio. The Toy Chronicle loves a good piece of 3D printing, so thought we’d share this with you today.

The video below is an insight into the latest project the pair have been working on, a 3D printed articulated model play set of Frida.

Modelled in Zbrush Eva has managed to capture every last detail that makes this set stand out! Along side the doll, Marco designed the set around Frida. The playset includes a fully articulated doll, a bedframe, chairs and other accessories; all inspired by elements from the artists paintings, as well as referencing her documented belongings.Sbaraini states – “Kahlo is an inspirational figure for a number of reasons, she was not only a talented painter, but also a revolutionary woman who transcended illness to live an incredibly colorful life – I was inspired to create this by modern movements such as A Mighty Girl, alongside the popular culture of collectable figurines, and body-positive toys for young children, both girls and boys.”In a leading-edge move, the designers have made the doll available free of charge as a 3D printable file – allowing those with access to this upcoming technology the to ability to simply download the design, and print it at home or through a local print bureau.

This design not only disrupts what is commonly available as a plaything for children, but also the accessibility of it to the consumer. It’s common now for schools to have these desktop 3D printing machines, as well as hack-spaces, extra-curricula clubs, and individual home-users. [Still] The doll can be bought from the [MyMiniFactory] shop in a traditional method, but I’m keen to see the number of those who download the design aswell.”The doll is derived from a previous upload by Sbaraini and Autilio, ‘Articulated figure’, a printable design constructed of 3 parts, with 10 points of articulation. Thanks to the editable’ nature of 3D printable files, Sbaraini was able to use the design software Zbrush, to modify the Articulated figure into a doll recognisable as Frida Kahlo.
