“…and I hope never to return” are the words written on the last page on the iconic artist’s diary, Frida Kahlo.
Frida Kahlo is a woman who cannot be defined or restricted by words, or may their not be any words invented yet to describe Kahlo’s beauty and strength.
Kahlo contracted polio at the age of 6, encountered an almost deadly accident at the age of 18 and went on to marry Diego Rivera, a muralist and ultimate womanizer. Although she suffered from physical illnesses which affected her well-being and lifestyle, she became one of the world’s most recognisable names in the world of art.
For me, she represents the pain that every woman on earth may be going through, whether it is physical, emotional or infidelity, which are expressed in her self-portraits so bluntly and poignantly. After clearly sensing the intensity of her agony in her paintings and diary, I can at the same time sense the greatness of her hope.
Below are some of Kahlo’s quotes, which I hope inspire you as much as they inspire me
Viva La Frida!
