Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter, born on 6 July 1907, known for her many portraits, self-portraits, and works inspired by the nature and artifacts of Mexico. Inspired by the country’s popular culture, she employed a unique art style to explore questions of identity, postcolonialism, class, and race in Mexican society. In 1925 Kahlo was involved in a bus accident, which so seriously injured her that she had to undergo more than 30 medical operations in her lifetime. During her slow recovery, Kahlo taught herself to paint.
Her paintings often had strong autobiographical elements and mixed realism with fantasy. Kahlo has been described as a surrealist or magical realist. She is known for painting about her experience of chronic pain. Her paintings were displayed in Paris and Mexico. She passed away on 13 July 1954, and is still considered as one of the most famous artist in the world.
