Mexico’s most prominent revolutionary artist, Frida Kahlo
Frida Kahlo was born in Coyoacán, Mexico City, July 6th 1907, at the dawn of the Mexican Revolution. Kahlo directly pointed out the correlation between her life and the revolution, going as far as to say that she was born in 1910, the year the revolution started. The defining feature of her art is the vibrant colors inspired by native Mexican culture.
Frida Kahlo suffered from physical pain all throughout her life. She had polio at a young age that caused a limp in one leg, and in 1925 she had a car accident which damaged her spine, pelvis, and uterus, forcing her to spend most of her days in bed. That was when she started painting. Since Kahlo mostly drew from the mirror on the ceiling, most of her works are self-portraits, but her works show love, joy, passion, and creativity.
Diego Rivera’s Love
Frida Kahlo’s life opened a second act when she met Diego Rivera, the Mexican mural painter. They got married in 1929, overcoming the 21 year age gap. At the early days of the marriage she accompanied Rivera to America as his wife, but her work was slowly recognized and gained fame.
As a result she opened an exhibition in New York 1939, and became the first Mexican artist ever to hang her work in the Louvre. Diego Rivera was Kahlo’s love of her life, but the pain caused by his infidelity and divorce was greater than her physical suffering. In 1953 she fulfilled her dream and opened an exclusive exhibition in Mexico City, and passed away the following year.
