Photo Project: Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) VS Covid19|2020

Frida Kahlo

Η ιδέα ξεκίνησε αγοράζοντας μάσκα (λόγω του Covid 19), με το πρόσωπο της Frida, οπότε γιατί όχι να μην βλέπαμε πως θα ήταν η ίδια τότε;

Η φωτογράφηση έγινε ένα πρωινό στο σαλόνι του σπιτιού μου.

“My painting carries with it the message of pain.”

Frida Kahlo (July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954) was a Mexican artist mostly known for her self-portraits. Around the age of 18, Frida was terribly injured in a bus accident, and it was during her recovery that she started painting, although this was not the first art form she practiced.

Her paintings blend her pain and struggles with the vibrant colors and motifs of Mexican popular culture. Life was not kind to Frida. At the age of six she contracted polio, a condition that made one of her legs shorter and thinner than the other. She was bullied by her peers, and the disease isolated her for long periods of time. After the bus accident, she suffered multiple fractures of her spine, foot, pelvis, collarbone, ribs, and her shoulder was dislocated. She nearly lost her life, and needed over 30 surgeries.
