    Vivality

    It was the bright colours of her portraits that first drew me to her.  The subjects and their surrealism yet their deep personal message.  She very much disproves the theory that art is for art's sake and can be detached from its creator.  In her painting you see...

    Always Been Drawn to Frida

    Since I was very young I've been drawn to Frida Kahlo's artwork. Her painting is so fascinating, raw and honest... as a girl who draws and paints for her own entertainment, I have to say that Frida is basically my personal hero. She was so brave and totally unapologetic...

    Frida

    I was first introduced to Frida Kahlo by my high school spanish teacher. I have been obsessed with her work ever since. I was so excited when our small town decided to show the movie Frida on Independent Film Monday. :)

    Unique

    Ever since I saw the movie about her life, Frida, I've been obsessed with her. We are so similar. She painted to cope with an injury and I started painting to cope with family problems. Her boyfriend left her at a horrible time in her life, as did mine. Her painting and ideas...

    Icon

    Who doesn't? Who doesn't love this icon? She got extremely appreciated but I wonder why.  Is it because she was eccentric?  Is it because she was an artist in her own right next to and challenging the great Diego Rivera?  Is it because she had a terrible...

    Viva La Vida

    Like most of us, probably, I became obsessed with Frida Kahlo as a young high school student.  I felt such empathy for the suffering she endured in her life, and was so inspired by the beauty that she was able to create out of that suffering.  She lived such a rich...
