Today I will be addressing a special theme in the art, work and life of one of the most emblematic artists of all time, was a symbol of rebellion for women who were gradually fighting more for their claims as a genre, I'm talking about the strange Frida Kahlo accompany me to discover a little of her life in that publication.
Frida Kahlo was born in Mexico in 1907 and is widely recognized in her country as in the rest of the world for her political ideas and for her strong character through which she left the image of the strong and warrior woman, she married the muralist painter Diego Rivera who is the creator of the muralist movement in Latin America.
Another facet is her tormented life product of numerous diseases that accompanied her throughout her life, it is precisely this point that the feminist movements take into account, turning her into an icon to follow for her strength and temperament before the tragedies that life gave her.
Among the disastrous eventualities in her life is the bus accident that caused multiple fractures that would leave her with a decrease in motor function for the rest of her life, but this condition that left her for long months in bed in a state of total prostration brought the muse with her to start the artistic path in painting, and it was also thanks to an idea to paint a car portrait, commanded to install a mirror strategically positioned on the canopy of the ceiling to be reflected and be able to paint her first car portrait.
The other part of her muse was love, she was married 3 times in which she also found inspiration and was a motive of influence in her works.
This is the genius of Frida Kahlo's life, since before so many complications to lead a normal life she was able to enter the artistic circles of Mexico and influence with her art and ideas, she was an emblematic symbol for her country.
Her technique and style are between a thin line, surrealism and realism are par excellence the genres in painting most used by Frida Kahlo during her artistic trajectory, although there are some paintings in which some expressionist features can be appreciated.
Frida Kahlo's works were loaded with many popular codes of Mexican art, expressing in her paintings many stories that she extracted from her extensive knowledge in archaeology and anthropology, even her way of dressing was part of the aboriginal designs, Tehuana dresses and many flowers in hair.
At that time he aspired to study medicine. In this school, he met future Mexican intellectuals and artists and was part of a group of students known as "Los Cachuchas," named for the caps they wore. Only two women belonged to this group: Carmen Jaime and Frida herself.
The place that I live in as home was recognized by the media because it became a meeting place for different artists, the so-called blue house, was located in the city of Coyoacán, which belonged to Frida's father. Among the artistic and political personalities who gathered in the blue house are Leon Trotsky, Henry Moore, Remedios Varo, the Spanish artist I spoke about in yesterday's publication, and André Bretón.
