Where to start.  Frida Kahlo is one of my favorite
artists.  She was way ahead of her time.  She
was born in Mexico in 1907.  She suffered a lot
of emotional and physical pain in her life.  She
contracted polio when she was five, and was in
a bus accident when she was a teenager that
left her badly injured and bedridden.  This is
when she began her interest in art.  Most of her
works are self-portraits, but she also has many
works that she used to express her pain.  Her
turbulent marriage to revolutionary Mexican
artist Diego Rivera is also a prominent theme in
her work.


Here's some of her work:
