The past six of July, Frida Kahlo would have been 100 years old. I still remember the huge impression her work caused in me the first time I saw it. I was very young, but I couldn't get out of my mind those raw pictures. You may or may not like her paintings aesthetically, but the symbolism is undeniably priceless.
She lived a short, but intense life. Frida was born in 1907 in Coyoacán, México, although she would claimed she was born in 1910, the year the Mexican revolution started. At age six, she caught Polio, causing her a deformity on one of her legs.
Things got worst, when she had a bus accident. Her spinal column broke and her reproductive organs were damaged. She suffered terrible pains during the rest of her life, as well as sterility. While she was in bed, recovering from the severe injuries, she started painting.
"La columna rota"
She despised her German origin, and that's why the European Frida is about to bleed to death.
" Las dos Fridas"
My first thought was to talk only about Kahlo and her work. Later, it occurred to me that I could link this post with traditional Mexican fashion. I introduced you my Mexican dress.
