I love art and my favorite artist is Mexican surrealist painter, Frida Kahlo. Her life story is interesting as well as her art. She was born on July 6, 1907, near Mexico City. She studied medicine, but she turned her attention away from it after a serious bus accident in 1925. Kahlo began a full-time painting career and while she was recovering from the accident she painted to occupy her time. She created 143 surrealist paintings, although only 55 of them are self-portraits that often symbolic wounds. Frida Kahlo was influenced by the Mexican mythology and the Mexican culture in general, christian and Jewish themes often appear in her artwork. Feel free to watch the slide show of her paintings. I'm pretty sure you'll love them as much as I do. Enjoy!
