Frida Kahlo Photo Interpretations - 2016

Photo: © Franco De Simone

My new blog, just up on ModernSalon is on Frida Kahlo, the Mexican surrealist painter and icon, now a cult, who led a dramatic pain-filled life and painted extraordinary self-portraits featuring her one famous eyebrow, a faint mustache she didn’t hide, and inspirational hair concoctions on top of her head. Franco De Simone’s exhibition, Frida Kahlo: “An Illustrated Life” opens on July 7 to September 7, 2016, at the Joseph D. Carrier Art Gallery in Toronto. To see my Modern blog and the extraordinary inspirations, plus Franco de Simone’s brilliant video, click HERE

    Love you are amazed, Franco. Wishing you every success with the exhibition. You deserve it. Check out the Frida Kahlo album under Icons on my top menu. You are there too.
