Artist's Description

Acrylic on canvas.

  • This painting is my homage to Frida Kahlo, my favorite woman artist.
  • Mexican painter known as Frida Kahlo, was born under the name of Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo Calderon, a July 6, 1907 in Coayacán, Mexico.
  • Frida once said: "I suffered two grave accidents in my life …. One in which a streetcar knocked me down and the other was Diego. " The streetcar accident left her physically disabled and emotionally crippled.
    During her lifetime, Frida created some 200 paintings, drawings and sketches related to the experiences of her life, physical and emotional pain and her turbulent relationship with Diego. 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 person I know best. "

Now she is gone but her legacy will live forever …
