Amazing Frida Kahlo

I don’t give a shit what the world think. I was born a bitch, I was born a painter, I was born fucked. But I was happy in my way. You did not understand what I am. I am love. I am pleasure, I am essence, I am an idiot, I am an alcoholic, I am tenacious, I am simply, I am… You are a shit.

Frida Kahlo to Diego Rivera

Frida Kahlo. Love. Beauty. Inspiration. Impressive woman with a tragic destiny. Great artist.  Brave, strong, and unique. 

 I paint myself because I am often alone and I am the subject I know best
