For me, Frida was one of the most important artists of the 20th century. The mix of Mexican folk art and the realism (that she could observe in her husband’s work) allowed her to create seemly naive, but truly powerful and creative pictures. Most of them center on her personal suffering. As a teenager she suffered a severe car accident that led to further complications. Her life was marked by physical and emotional pain.
Frida become an iconic figure amongst feminists and an inspiration to many artists and designers. She is also a great inspiration to me. I like the rich colors, Mexican folk, and the surreal reality. All that elements can be used to create cozy, colorful but also simply and airy kitchen.
