Kyle Thompson has made a name for himself with his surrealist self-portraits. Thompson puts himself in harm's way for the sake of his art, but his risks have paid off. His work demonstrates the technique and skills of an artist far beyond his years. He even manages to make suburban Illinois look awesome - now that's talent. Check out our interview with Mr. Thompson below.
The cultures of Sweden and Mexico are worlds apart and yet the fact Swedish fashion mag DV Mode recently paid homage to Mexican Artist Frida Kahlo shows just how globally significant her self-portraits were. Photographer Fredrik Wannerstedt uses extravagent floral head-dresses, silky long gowns and stylized shadows to try recreate the look of those personal, moving paintings. Let's hope the parrot wasn't too much of a diva.
