Guess what? I’m gonna tell you a nice little bedtime story. Are you ready? Once upon a time, there was a sweet, innocent girl named Red. That’s me. And she met a bad old wolf. That’s you. She kicked the crap out of that wolf, and she told her daddy all about it. Then she told the police, and the bad old wolf went to jail for a million years.

Frida Kahlo de Rivera (July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954; Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón) was a Mexican painter, born in Coyoacán.

Perhaps best known for her self-portraits, Kahlo’s work is remembered for its “pain and passion”, and its intense, vibrant colors. Her work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous tradition, and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form.

Her work has also been described as surrealist, and in 1938 André Breton, principal initiator of the surrealist movement, described Kahlo’s art as a “ribbon around a bomb”.

During her lifetime, Frida created some 200 paintings, drawings and sketches related to her experiences in life, physical and emotional pain and her turbulent relationship with Diego. She produced 143 paintings, 55 of which are self-portraits. When asked why she painted so many self-portraits, Frida replied: “Because I am so often alone….because I am the subject I know best.” 

She also stated, “I was born a bitch. I was born a painter.” (x)

"nope. fuck that. your body is still your body. your arms still wings,
your mouth still a gun. you tragic monster, misfiring bird.
you have all you need to be a hero. don’t save the world,
but do save yourself. when prayer doesn’t work: dance, fly, fire."
