Mexchic Muses: Nahui Olin

I recently saw a brilliant exhibition at the Museo Tamayo in Mexico City on the artist/muse relationship between Mexican poet/artist/muse Nahui Olin and her lover the eccentric Mexican artist/dreamer/imaginary city builder Dr. Atl

Nahui Olin, currently my newest and most favorite Mexchic muse, modeled for many great artists and photographers, most notably Tina ModattiDiego Rivera and Edward Weston.

She was a modern woman quite ahead of her time. Her painting is quirky and naive and I adore the exaggeration of her huge alien green eyes along with the sense of humor she emits.

She’s having fun, isn’t she just fabulous?!
