Frida, was a Mexican painter who marked the history of culture forever, almost a synonym for feminism and passion. Trying to understand it is to immerse yourself in a world of colour, passion and poetry.
Thanks to her paintings, phrases and anecdotes from her about her we can know a little about her soul. A person who lived with great intensity and rebellion turning her whole life into art.
So feminine and eccentric, she adored and adorned her hair with flower crowns, orchids, roses, dahlias and chrysanthemums, with which she expressed the roots of Mexican culture, but also the bougainvillaea that conveyed her deep appreciation. Because of her femininity and beauty, the artist managed to give her style a unique touch by introducing them into her hairstyle, something that stood out and has made her an icon to this day.
Flowers and plants appear in most of her work, that makes us realise the devotion and admiration she had for nature and her environment "I paint flowers so they don't die" one of her most famous phrases and with which Frida expressed his desire to make everything that deserves admiration eternal.
She also used the symbology of flowers to express feelings in his paintings, such as colocasia, a tropical plant typical of Mexican gardens, to express duality, or the crown of thorns around his neck to capture his own pain and suffering, through the fantasy and magical realism of her works.
Her blue house, built by her father and in which she lived all her life with Diego Rivera, was also decorated with warm-weather plants, bougainvillaea, cacti, and roses.
Eternal ambassador of floral passion, Kahlo was her own muse, and taught us to be unique, passionate but above all to be happy in our own skin.
