Frida Kahlo quotes have become something of a daily dose of reality. You still don’t know who she is? We’re here to remedy that.

Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter who was known for her self-portraits and her use of folk art style in her works. Her works explored very many subject matters including race, class, identity, gender and post colonialism. The beautiful artist was born to a ‘Mestiza’ mother and a German father.

When she was a child, she was left disabled as a result of Polio; and at 18, she was involved in a serious accident which forced her to abandon her university education and her journey to medical school. During her recovery, she turned to art and painting (which had been a hobby of hers) and developed it, becoming an icon for the era.
