Cinco de que?

What day is it? duh Friday, but its Cinco De Mayo! 🇲🇽

And I am celebrating by hanging up this beautiful canvas I purchased yesterday of Frida Kahlo painted by a phx local artist Mia Diaveon. #SUPPORTYOURLOCALARTISTS 🌺🌵☀️

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Here are some interesting facts about the amazing feminist artist icon: 

  • Frida Kahlo made 143 paintings; 55 are self-portraits.
  • She became famous decades after her death
  • She was born in Mexico city
  • Kahlo was bisexual
  • Casa Azul, her home, was turned into a museum after her death
  • Frida arrived at her first solo exhibition in an ambulance
  • She became a painter after she was involved in a nearly fatal bus accident
  • Diego Rivera was also an artist, whom she married twice

Now before you go out drinking margaritas or tequila with chips and salsa, remember why this day is celebrated!

  1. The holiday celebrates the Mexican victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862.
  2. it is not Mexico’s independence day.
  3. Also, this holiday is not celebrated in Mexico.

Hope everyone enjoys their Friday and be safe out there!
