Kahlo Faculty


Welcome to the Kahlo Faculty

Our Faculty takes it's name from the Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo de Rivera.

Frida is best known for her self-portraits, and her work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous tradition and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form.  Her work has also been described as surrealist, and in 1938 André Breton, principal initiator of the surrealist movement, described her art as a "ribbon around a bomb".

Frida suffered lifelong health problems, many caused by a traffic accident she survived as a teenager. Recovering from her injuries isolated her from other people, and this isolation influenced her works, many of which are self-portraits of one sort or another.
