south african artist tony gum stuns with her tributes to frida kahlo

April 17, 2017

Cape Town-based photography and visual artist Tony Gum recently paid homage to the legendary Frida Kahlo with two self-portraits. Donning Kahlo’s trademark floral crown and unibrow, Gum channels the unyielding confidence seen in the late artist’s self-portraits without imitating it. Gum brings her own self-assuredness and twinkling eyes that imply that there is much more going on below the surface. Check out the series and a few follow up snaps, below.
