Frida Kahlo

Despite the fact that I hate the way Frida kahlo is becoming a comercial and trending item (just like Che Guevara or Van Gogh) I have to admit that she was a cool lady, one of the things that I really like about her, besides of her great works as a painter is that she was a character, she created herself and was influenced by the taste and fashion of the indigenous people from Mexico, this indigenous groups have been ignored and rejected for many so call “intellectuals and artist” because they were considered inferior, Frida saw and knew that their knowledge of fashion, composition, color and art were exceptional and she used this knowledge to create her own personality. Thanks to her fame many of this traditional costumes and textiles are now known worldwide and appreciated as they are: Real pieces of ART
