Nahum Zenil


Artist Biography


Nahum Zenil is a Mexican artist born in 1947. His work has been showcased internationally and is part of a number of museum collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Although often compared to Frida Kahlo, because of his frequent use of himself as the central subject matter in much of his imagery, Zenil was unaware of Kahlo until late in his career.

Zenil is politically active and known for advocating gay rights in much of his artwork.

For more information on the artist, we recommend the book Nahum Zenil: Witness to the Self.
