"My Birth" by Frida Kahlo
I am drawn to Frida’s work because of her naïveté of style and frankness of subject. This week I will give you Frida’s life, my version, in five paintings. Hmmm, where to begin? Frida was born in 1906 in Mexico City. As you can see from this disturbing painting, she was a large baby with lots of hair. In fact, she was born with a unibrow which she will later use to great advantage in many self portraits. What a start!
