Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo was a gifted Mexican painter born in 1907 who was known for her self-portraits, florals, dessert landscapes and other works inspired by indigenous Mexican nature and culture. She was openly bisexual, had a penchant for wear suits, and maintained progressive ideas about gender throughout her life. Her self-portraiture work explored many ‘taboo’ subjects such as female sexuality, feminine beauty standards, and pain.
