This self-portrait is part of my series "Being Marilyn Monroe. Icon Portraits.", a series of self-portraits reflecting and expressing my admiration for and my identification with inspiring modern day icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Frida Kahlo, Audrey Hepburn, Maria Callas, Romy Schneider, Michael Jackson, Grace Kelly and Niki de Saint Phalle.

I love Frida Kahlos art and I feel very close to her, not only because of her obsession for self-portraying, but also because she had that absolute willing to be an artist! Courageous, no-compromised and ambitioned she made of her life a piece of art. She lived for and in art. With her husband and love of her life, mexican artist Diego Rivera. The work of Frida is more than art. It is self-knowledge, self-love and -confidence. And it is life lived, with all it's ups and downs.

The series is influenced by the work of surrealist female artists like Frida Kahlo and Niki de St. Phalle as well as by Italian author Luigi Pirandello's post-modernist approach on identity theory. And it is based on a series of coincidences, that brought me to explore and re-think the inherent nature of portraying providing a practical meaning to the American poet William Carlos Williams' quote: «The artist is always and forever painting only one thing: a self-portrait».

"Being Frida Kahlo" is also available for a lower price as limited edition fine art canvas print without frame, shipped in a tube. Feel free to contact me!
