The Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) lived a life of extraordinary suffering. She caught a disease called polio when she was six. She was nearly killed in a bus accident when she was eighteen. The bus accident left her with long-lasting injuries that caused her great pain for the rest of her life. Because of these injuries, she suffered a miscarriage when she was twenty-five. Many critics have pointed out that the pain in Kahlo's body has affected her paintings. Although she was an active, energetic, vibrant woman, the excruciating pain often separated her from other people and made her feel alone. However, Kahlo also lived a life of passion. She played sports in school, wore colorful clothes, danced, studied and fell in love. She was very proud of being Mexican and was politically active. These characteristics have been represented in her paintings. She used bold colors, including lots of reds; she used Mexican imagery, such as monkeys and parrots. Frida Kahlo took her pain, combined it with her strong spirit, and turned it into art. Her paintings may make viewers uncomfortable with their honesty, but Kahlo was not the type of person to hold back. If she could suffer and grow, her paintings could most likely make viewers feel and grow as well.
