Few artists are more deeply revered than Frida Kahlo. In the years since her death, the Mexicana has become known for her inventive, soulful works of art, her fearless spirit and audacious wisdom. Below, scroll through 10 Frida Kahlo memes you need in your life:
You were rooted in perseverance and strength.
A little liquor never hurt anyone right?!
Always searching for higher ground.
Kahlo taught us that "strange" is beautiful.
Sadly, this gorgeous sentiment was not written by Frida Kahlo. It's from a poem entitled "Frida Kahlo to Marty McConnell." Read the poem in full, in English, at the poet's official website. We love this quote anyway, and feel it still captures the spirit of the artist.
A simple reminder from one badass mujer.
A reminder to embrace the change.
When she was just 18-years-old, Kahlo survived a brutal bus accident that left her with a broken spinal column, broken collarbone, broken ribs, broken pelvis, a dislocated right foot, a dislocated shoulder and eleven fractures in her right leg.
Though she suffered from extreme pain and infertility for the rest of her life, she channeled her intense hurt into her work. So, to say she knows a little something about strength and endurance would be a massive understatement.
Frida, Frida, gotta get down for Frida.
"Where are my wings?"
Step aside, Kim K. Frida Kahlo was the original selfie queen.
Frida's a feminist icon for the ages.
"Feet, what do I need them for if I have wings to fly?"
