Frida Kahlo de Rivera (July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954; Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón) was a Mexican painter, born in Coyoacán.
Perhaps best known for her self-portraits, Kahlo’s work is remembered for its “pain and passion”, and her intense, vibrant colors. Her work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous tradition, and by feminists for her uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form.
She produced 143 paintings, 55 of which are self-portraits. When asked why she painted so many self-portraits, Frida replied: “Because I am so often alone….because I am the subject I know best.”
I am a visual artist, painter and ceramist. The subject of my work is women. I born in Portugal, but I belong of all parts of the planet and my home is the World. I work in a great number of mediums, including oil, charcoal, watercolour, acrylic, pencil, photography and mixed media. I have 3 sons.
My artwork can be found in private collections across Portugal, USA, France, Mozambique, Switzerland, Chile, Nicaragua and Argentina
