Frida Kahlo is probably the most famous Mexican female artist of all time, and one of the most recognizable icons of Mexican contemporary culture around the world. Her tradition in self portraits made us familiar with the woman behind the brushes — she’s uncannily familiar and mysterious at the same time.
