How did the personal difficulties experienced be Frida Kahlo shape her consciousness and her art?

  1. There is a movie called Frida w/ Selma Hyek in it b/c I watched it in art class but I can’t remember why it did she had some major surgery that left her in major pain so that she had to be carried everywhere and so she expressed her pain from her surgerys through her art with self portraits

  2. Her life was full of physical pain which also caused great depression and mental anguish.She had polio aged 6, was seriously injured in a bus accident aged 18 and started to paint whilst in bed suffering her serious injuries. She often painted herself using a mirror.This was because she was often alone. A failed marriage and alcohol and drug use to mask her pain made her pour out all her emotions on the canvas.

  3. There are two obvious areas both of which feature in her work:
    Her relationship with Rivera.
    and her physical difficulties, including her fine moustache.
