Infamous for her eyebrows and vibrant surrealism, Frida Kahlo is a disabled latinx icon.
Friducha, or the way Kahlo expressed her inner emotions and thoughts in her paintings, can be summed up by her popular quotation: “They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn’t. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.”
Images of Frida with a broken back and other injuries are often seen in her work alongside representations of her strength, femininity, and beauty — she truly mastered acknowledging her pain without garnering pity or tragedy; she just shared her everyday existence. An all-around passionate woman, her openness in art, love, and life rejected societal expectations.
For all the lovers, the painters, the writers, the dreamers, the makers, the chronic-pain-ers, the non-conformers, and anyone else who views the future as fluid: second chances always offer the opportunity for improvement.
