A Mexican artist who painted surrealistic portraits inspired by nature and the artefacts of Mexico, employing a naive folk art style. She was disabled as a child with polio and suffered from spina bifida. After a serious accident most of her paintings were related to both the physical and mental emotional pain experienced during her turbulent life. She married the Mexican muralist Diego Rivera and used art as a means of expressing hurt to expel her demons. She was interested in politics and supported the Mexican revolution.
I created this kaftan out of respect for Frida, her achievements and her ability to challenge the status quo. To me she was a gutsy, unique person who dealt with the challenges of life and her paintings today portray that strength of purpose and love of colour and nature. If you have a love of all things Mexican and colour, this is the kaftan for you.
