Frida Kahlo- Day 1- 31daysofWomen

“Pain, pleasure and death are no more than a process for existence. The revolutionary struggle in this process is a doorway open to intelligence.” ~Frida Kahlo, Mexican painter born July 6, 1907.
I was acquainted to her work at the age of 12 by my art’s teacher . I still remember gazing at her self-portraits: the colors, the mix of animals and the ability of the paintings to give you an insight of her suffering both physical and emotional. I admire her vulnerability and strength, despite all of her life’s turmoils she was set to become a painter and she did. Frida is for me a symbol of strength and feminism; she was the first twentieth-century Mexican artist whose work was purchased by the famous Museum of Louvre, today her work is recognized all around the world and this May, 2015 New Yorkers will have the opportunity to admire her work closely at the New York Botanical Garden through a unique exhibition called “Frida Kahlo’s Garden”.‪#‎31daysofwomen‬#WAP#powerful#innovators#allthingswomen
