ABOUT

Recognizable at first glance, Frida Kahlo (1907 - 1954), a Mexican artist that painted portraits & self-portraits, intertwined with ideas of feminism, race, and nature. Her captivating eyebrows in real life and in her work has become an international Frida signature.

This book covers Kahlo's art which expresses her tumultuous history, from early teens, to a miscarriage later in life. She described her painting as “the most sincere and real thing that I could do in order to express what I felt inside and outside of myself.” Frida Kahlo transformed into a revolutionary artist pushing the status-quo with a touch of Mexican-native folklore style paintings.
