Birthplace

Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderón was a Mexican painter known for her many portraits, self-portraits, and works inspired by the nature and artifacts of Mexico. Inspired by the country's popular culture, she employed a naïve folk art style to explore questions of identity, postcolonialism, gender, class, and race in Mexican society. Her paintings often had strong autobiographical elements and mixed realism with fantasy. In addition to belonging to the post-revolutionary Mexicayotl movement, which sought to define a Mexican identity, Kahlo has been described as a surrealist or magical realist. She is known for painting about her experience of chronic pain.Born to a German father and a mestiza mother, Kahlo spent most of her childhood and adult life at La Casa Azul, her family home in Coyoacán – now publicly accessible as the Frida Kahlo Museum. Although she was disabled by polio as a child, Kahlo had been a promising student headed for medical school until being injured in a bus accident at the age of 18, which caused her lifelong pain and medical problems. During her recovery, she returned to her childhood interest in art with the idea of becoming an artist.

Frida Kahlo's About

[]

Frida Kahlo was a well-known Mexican painter who specialized in self-portraits. Her paintings were a symbolic method of self-expression since she mixed traditional Mexican folk art with surrealism. Painting was not her first choice as a vocation for the self-taught artist, until a horrible occurrence changed her life and left her gravely damaged. She spent the most of her rehabilitation time painting and eventually used it as a means of expressing her anguish and suffering. 'Self Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird,' 'Memory or The Heart,' 'Henry Ford Hospital,' 'The Broken Column,' 'Me and My Parrot,' 'Self Portrait with Monkeys,' 'What I Saw in the Water,' and 'The Dream' are some of her most well-known pieces. Kahlo, one of the most well-known painters of the twentieth century, suffered with chronic pain, infertility, and handicap throughout her life. Kahlo had multiple extramarital encounters and was one of the most sexually free women of her period while having an unhappy marriage.
