Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo was a 20th-century Mexican artist known for her surrealist and self-referential work. She was born in 1907 in Coyoacán, Mexico, and began painting after a serious traffic accident at the age of 18. Although her work was inspired by her personal life and the history and culture of Mexico, she also addressed political and social themes.

Kahlo married Mexican artist Diego Rivera and the two were part of Mexico's art and cultural scene during the 1920s and 1930s. Although Kahlo only had one solo exhibition in her lifetime, her work has been widely recognized and has been the subject of numerous retrospective exhibitions. Her work is characterized by its introspection and its exploration of themes such as identity, femininity, culture and politics. Her paintings include portraits, self-portraits and landscapes, and use a bright and vibrant color palette.

Kahlo has been considered a feminist icon and her work remains highly regarded around the world. Even though her career as an artist was brief, lasting only 20 years, she left a lasting impression on art history and has been widely influential in popular culture. Kahlo died in 1954 at the age of 47, leaving behind an artistic and cultural legacy that continues to inspire artists and admirers around the world.
