Vibrant, symbolic, haunting, and strange
Frida Kahlo's unforgettable paintings are so vivid and intense it is surprising that she spent most of her life unwell. With her body broken at an early age in a violent bus accident, she was sometimes bedridden, occasionally bound to a wheelchair, and always in pain. Frida Kahlo coped with her physical reality by escaping into art. Inspired in part by her colorful Mexican heritage, her creations are eerie and vibrant, strange and symbolic. They are a bit like Halloween, actually, which is why a Frida Kahlo costume is a perfect pick for the eeriest of days.
