Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo Exhibit Opens Sunday

Like many artists, Frida Kahlo has achieved cult-like fans since her untimely death at the age of 47. Her artwork, in addition to her trademark unibrow have become iconic images that are recognized globally.

Kahlo was far ahead of her time, laying the groundwork for feminism. She had affairs with both men and women, exhibited tremendous pain and struggle in her pieces, even falsified her date of birth to align with the start of the Mexican revolution.

It's been over 60 years since her death and we still can't stop talking about her. In fact, her popularity only seems to grow. Exhibitions for the Spring and Summer have already popped up in New York and Detroit.

Celebrities like Beyoncé pay homage to her.



Frida also lives on in these people's tattoos:
