Frida & Diego

This is one of the posters leading the way into the current show "Frida & Diego   Passion, Politics, & Painting" which is currently at the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario). This wonderful show features over 80 paintings and works on paper by Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera, probably the most famous of Mexican artists, as well as more than 60 photos of the couple. There is also a slide show of some of Rivera's famous murals. For more info on the show click here.

Watched a film about them recently - they led a tempestuous life.

Fascinating couple, visited their "adjoining" home in Mexico City a few years back - gave new meaning to "living together, and yet apart". Sounds like a great show.

I am not a big fan of her paintings - but they did live an interesting life!

Very interesting. I think the message on the poster is true of many artists...they feel this inner compulsion to create and it's what they must do or else it's despair and defeat.
