The Inspiration of Frida Kahlo
They are so damn 'intellectual' and
rotten that I can't stand them anymore....
I [would] rather sit on the floor in the market of Toluca and sell tortillas, than have anything to do with those 'artistic' bitches of Paris.
Kahlo , (on Andre Breton and the European
surrealists) letter to Nickolas Muray, 02-16-1939
Mexican painter (1907 - 1954)
Frida Kahlo revolutionized the world art community in the early to mid-twentieth century with her unique style, pioneered by the pains in her soul. Kahlo endured a tragic accident at eighteen followed by a passionate and turbulent marriage to Mexican muralist Diego Riviera. She painted every feeling that went through her. She was delicate as a dove yet lit up a room with her internal fiery liveliness.
Her authenticity and eccentric presence was genuine and without pretentiousness. Rawness and strength marked this extraordinary Mexican woman as she put her life on canvas and the world became captivated spectators.
The truthfulness, rebellious essence and natural talent of Frida Kahlo are the inspirations for our Mexican restaurant.
