Who is Frida Kahlo?

Frida Kahlo's artwork and personal life have turned into a cultural phenomenon in the last few decades. The younger generation is looking at her work with a whole new perspective and appreciation. 

Frida was a Mexican-born painter who became known for her striking use of color and her unique take mixing both realism and symbolism. Although she is mostly known for her self-portraits paintings, her artwork is incredibly diverse. She created one hundred and forty three paintings, and fifty-five of these are self-portraits.

Mexican indigenous culture impacted her work tremendously, which you can easily spot in her use of bold and bright colors, symbolic settings, and topics. She often wears flowers in her hair and she features animals in many of her portraits.  

Frida died in 1954, and she is remembered as a passionate artist who was proud of her Mexican culture and proudly expressed it in her ideas and art.

Using black and red acrylic paint, start panting Frida's face features onto your flower pot. Don't stress about making it perfect, just have fun!

TIP: You can first outline her features with a pencil or a thin-tip pen and use it as a guide before moving on to the acrylic paint.

Start with her black hair.
