Art – Frida Khalo was a Mexican artist who painted numerous amounts of portraits, self-portraits and other works inspired by nature and Mexico. Mostly inspired by her native country’s popular culture, she adopted a naïve folk art style to help her explore questions surrounding identity, gender, class, post-colonialism and race in Mexican society. Frida Khalo described her art and paintings as surrealist and magical realist. Her work and message today is more important than ever, as it represented a sense of freedom and justice in a corrupted world.
