F IS FOR FRIDA KHALO - WHO RUN THE WORLD

F IS FOR FRIDA KHALO - WHO RUN THE WORLD

 

One of Mexico’s greatest painters, Frida Khalo accomplished so much during her short life. While celebrated for her amazing talent, Frida had a hard life filled with both physical and mental pain. 

Always being a fighter, Frida was diagnosed with polo as a 6 year old girl with the effects suffered all of her life. Her suffering did not stop there when in 1925 a bus accident resulted in severe injuries

Her painting ‘The Broken Column,’ which was painted right after she underwent spine surgery, is an expression of her suffering and one of her most important works. This painting is symbolic of her physical and psychological struggles.

Perhaps best known for her self-portrait ‘Self-Portrait with Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird’ where she depicted herself as a victim, wearing a necklace of thorns. This piece is said to be another accurate representation of the pain Frida faced throughout her life and her eternal hope of recovery depicted through the hummingbird. This has been showcased in over 25 museums in the United States. It has also been displayed in countries like Australia, Canada, France, and Spain.

Frida is without a doubt one of the most mentally strong women throughout history. Her life of pain was channeled beautifully through her art, communicating her life and anguish for us to see and appreciate. Her strength is an inspiration to all children, encouraging us to express our true selves and emotions.
