We dedicate this post to one of the most influential women and artist in Mexican culture: Frida Kahlo. We are proud to present you some interesting facts about her artwork, personal life, personality, and love for Mexican culture and Mexican coffee.
Frida Kahlo de Rivera (1907-1954) is one of the most important Mexican artists.
She was a great painter, political activist and icon of female creativity.
Kahlo is known internationally mainly in America and Europe. During her artistic life she lived in Paris, France, New York, California and Los Angeles.
Frida Kahlo was born, grew up and died in her Blue House in Coyoacan, Mexico City.
The Blue House is today a museum dedicated to Kahlo’s life and artwork.
Kahlo was half German, from her father’s side (her father was a German photographer) and half Mexican from her mother’s side.
She was married to Diego Rivera who is one of the most influential Mexican painters whose frescoes started the mural movement in Mexican art.
Though Kahlo’s artistic life was rich and full of passion, Kahlo’s personal life was not easy, it was marked by tragedy and pain.
When Kahlo was a child at the age of six years old she contracted polio. Later when she was a young woman she suffered a terrible bus accident.
As a consequence of the severe injuries from that accident, Kahlo started suffering from chronic pain and health problems that lasted until the end of her life.
She had also to abandon her medical studies due to that accident.
