Frida, Toronto

The high-end Mexican restaurant Frida is named after and inspired by Mexican artist Frida Khalo, with examples of her art decorating the walls throughout.  It is therefore aptly appropriate that the bathroom signs should be two iconic self-protraits which she painted, including one where she had cut off all her hair and dressed herself like a man in a suit.  While the images are more than sufficent, the signs are labelled with the Spanish terms "Hombres" for "men" and "Mujeres" for "women.
