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)
Hi!!!! Many of you know and love my best friend Toni (aka @sleepysweedie)! She’s starting a rehab outpatient class on monday to help her get sober.
Some of you may know Toni’s home situation. Her mom is a veteran and permanently disabled and Toni is her caretaker. They live off of Toni’s food service job and social security so they make enough to pay the bills but nothing extra. She doesn’t have enough to cover the copays for the full four weeks.
Her insurance covers most of it but theres still a $40 dollar copay before every class. The class is weekdays for 4 weeks. We are trying to raise $1,000 to cover the classes and medication she may need. So i decided to set up a Paypal account if you would like to donate to help her recovery. I love her very much and I need to see her fight through this. I know she’s friends with a lot of you and you want to see her succeed too.
Please signal boost this!!!!!!! I understand not everybody can donate but if you can’t afford to donate please send loving and positive vibes her way and keep her in your thoughts or just reblog this post. It takes a lot of courage to ask for help and I’m so proud of her (Im sure all of you are too). Please dont reblog this with hateful messages and dont send any mean or judgmental messages to her!!! (if you have anything to say you can send them to me). We all have things we struggle with and she needs all the love and support she can get!! We will be sending out thank you cards to anybody who donates. We will both have donation buttons on our page. I really really really appreciate any support we can get <3
