A Love Letter to Frida

Passtionate, poetic and blunt, Kahlo remains a visionary who's artistic wisdom is still revealed, year after year, to new lovers of her work. Some quoteables from the woman who remains so vastly misunderstood:

"I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you."

"They thought I was a Surrealist, but I wasn't. I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality."

"Take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic."

"I drank to drown my sorrows, but the damned things learned how to swim."

"I paint flowers so they will not die."

“I love you more than my own skin and even though you don’t love me the same way, you love me anyways, don’t you? And if you don’t, I’ll always have the hope that you do, and I’m satisfied with that. Love me a little. I adore you.” 

“Nothing is absolute. Everything changes, everything moves, everything revolves, everything flies and goes away.” 

-Frida Kahlo
