Artist creates street-inspired depiction of Frida Kahlo at South Shore Cinema in Oak Creek

OAK CREEK, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A celebration of Latino Cinema is coming to life through art.

An artist created a street-inspired depiction of Frida Kahlo at the South Shore Cinema in Oak Creek.

It's to kick off "Cine Latino," a film festival featuring Latino films and filmmakers.

The artist used 2-D skills combined with color to create a unique piece of art. 

"It's a permanent installation and I think it's pretty cool they were open enough to have some contemporary art on their buildings and I think it's really cool in terms of the direction they're moving in," said Artist Mauricio Ramirez.

You may have seen Ramirez's work before in Milwaukee. He also painted murals on utility boxes on Wisconsin Avenue and a mural honoring singer Selena in Walker's Point.

Cine Latino starts on Wednesday and runs through Sunday.
