Frida Kahlo

Happy birthday Frida Kahlo, in honor of your birthday, I will cancel my eyebrow waxing appointment.

Today is Frida Kahlo's birthday anniversary. Frida was a Mexican painter whose work wasn't recognized until nearly a decade after her death. Frida self taught herself after she experienced a horrible accident with a trolley. After this devestating accident, she lived with pain every day. Through her art, Friday was able to express her pain and passion. She was also part of a strange marriage to painter Diego Rivera. Both had many different lovers, Frida's bi-sexual tendencies led her to especially have women lovers.

Cold Play's album name "Viva la Vida," was actually inspired by one of Frida's most famous paintings.
