I first learned about Frida Kahlo when my junior high school art teacher assigned her to me for a report. True, I learned to see surrealism and minimalism in a completely new light. But it was her personal story that resonated with me the most.
Frida Kahlo had one of the most interesting yet horribly sad lives I’ve ever learned about. Yet she remained a strong and independent soul that battled through every obstacle that stood on her way – and there were lots.
In honor of her passing on July 13th, 1954, I wanted to give you a glimpse of her amazing story.
