Transcript of Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo Mexican Artist Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo Born – July 6, 1907 in Coyoacan, Mexico
She used virbrant colors influenced by the indigenous colors
of Mexico in a style that reflected European influences such as:
Kahlo was married to famous
Mexican muralist,
Diego Rivera, twice.
As a teenager Frida was involved
in a terrible bus crash that changed
her life forever. Her broken body and debilitating pain
provided a lifetime of inspiration for her art. Self-Portrait with Cropped Hair shows Frida with shears in hand, while the freshly-cut hair surrounding her seems to come alive. Without her long hair, Frida undoubtedly felt she had sacrificed her femininity, as evidenced by the man's suit she wears in the portrait. At the top of the painting, Frida quotes a Mexican song: “Look, if I loved you, it was because of your hair. Now that you are without hair, I don't love you anymore.”
