Frida Kahlo

Parent

100 Women Street Gallery (international women)

Born in Mexico in 1907, the iconic uni-brow, hair adorned with flowers, and a slight mustache — these are the features that Frida is instantly recognized by, and the aspects of herself that she chose to portray time and time again in her self portraits.

Disabled by polio at the age of two and suffering grave injuries from a bus crash which almost killed her at the age of 18, she took up painting. Taking an interest in politics as well, Frida joined the Mexican Communist Party in 1948. She is still celebrated by artists and feminists across the world.
