Mexican artist and popular icon Frida Kahlo once said: “I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.”
Speaking to Kahlo’s sentiment and in celebration of a new exhibition featuring a collection of the acclaimed painters private possessions at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, we pay homage to the creative genius whose bold and vibrant artworks directly mirrored her spirited personality.
Like Kahlo’s style, the items on the page embrace her colorful, texturally rich and imaginative way of life.
