A Coincidental Find
Just last week, I had a few photos from the most recent exhibit at the Heard Museum about Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera and one of the pictures I featured was a self portrait of Frida called "Diego on my Mind". Last Saturday, I found a painting by Phoenix artist Moises that is his take on that very same painting this time with Diego Rivera pictured with Frida on his mind. It kind of looks like he might also be thinking about a nice taco but that's beside the point.
El Moises was born in Mexico and raised in Phoenix. His artwork has a sometimes whimsical look at culture and society and is always done in vibrant colors. You can read about him and see some of his other art a the link.
Tomorrow I'll show you the unlikely place I found this painting.
