On what would've been her 110th birthday, Frida Kahlo's iconic face can be seen across Houston. In the East End, Houston muralist DonkeeBoy painted the Mexican artist's face on a Wonder Woman figure. DonkeeBoy's mom, Sylvia Roman, passed down a love of Frida Kahlo to her son. Roman is the premier painter of Frida images in Houston, having created close to 100 pieces. Currently, she's creating a mural of Frida Kahlo in the Heights. At the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, you can see three of Kahlo's most famous pieces as part of the "Paint the Revolution: Mexican Modernism, 1910-1950" exhibit. The exhibit runs through October 1, and also features well-known artists, José Clemente Orozco, Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Rufino Tamayo.
