Meet Frida Kaho. What nationality is Frida? Mexican. Frida, of course, is Mexican. Frida fell in love and married one of Mexico's most famous artists. Then she became an artist and did mostly self-portraits because "that's who I know best" she said.
These are some hand-drawn and hand-painted Frida collages. I think she was a little wacko, but then ... who knows what people say about me? (don't answer that) I'm finding that there are lots of people out there who go bonkers over Frida stuff.
I'm not enamoured by her life story. But she is fun to collage. I mean, it's a great way to put my she-art techniques to use in a new twist, yes? And really, if we could ALL wear headbands and large flowers in our hair, we should - don't you think?
