The Working Proof: Madame Lolina – Red Riding Hood

New print release: this week the Working Proof is teaming up again with artist Madame Lolina to bring you the print Red Riding Hood to benefit the Kids in Need Foundation. This is the second time we have worked with Madame Lolina and once again she didn’t disappoint. Just like in her previous print release Communion_My Unicorn, Madame Lolina’s print Red Riding Hood has an undeniable quality of fantasy. I also really love the idea of female power inspired by a classic tale:

In this artwork, all of the red-hooded little girls from the whole nation gather and make an alliance – to resist the wolf and protect themselves.  I wanted to express the strong and determined will of the little, weak girls to protect themselves against a violent and cruel enemy by relying on one another.

Madame Lolina has chosen to pair with the Kids in Need Foundation because that some children don’t have sufficient educational opportunities is entirely the responsibility of grown ups.

This print is available in multiple sizes. It was digitally signed by the artist. The 8×10 and 11×14 prints are numbered by The Working Proof. Learn more here. Learn more here. Read our interview with Madame Lolina here. You can buy the print here.
