35 Inspirational Frida Kahlo Quotes On Success

Frida Kahlo was a Mexican artist who painted many portraits, self-portraits, and works inspired by the nature and artifacts of Mexico. Inspired by the country’s popular culture, she employed a naïve folk art style to explore questions of identity, post-colonialism, gender, class, and race in Mexican society. Her paintings often had strong autobiographical elements and mixed realism with fantasy. In addition to belonging to the post-revolutionary Mexicayotl movement, which sought to define a Mexican identity, Kahlo has been described as a surrealist or magical realist. This was a woman who dealt with and survived a great deal but always did so with a sense of pride, strength, and dignity. May her quotes inspire you to take action so that you may live your dreams.
