Introducing Frida KahloThe Wine
By Lisa Gmur, CSW
Frida Kahlo is considered one of Mexico’s greatest artists to have ever lived. While it’s been 67 years since her death, Kahlo still trends as the #1 artist on Instagram, surpassing even Vincent Van Goh, Leonardo Da Vinci, Claude Monet and Andy Warhol. The reason for this is pretty simple; Kahlo was an icon. An icon of female creativity; an icon for several minority groups and political movements such as feminism, the LGBTQ Community and Chicanos.
Frida Kahlo wines were inspired by her life, her passion, sophistication, elegance and attitude. Kahlo passionately embraced the adversities of life and found an opportunity to reinvent herself.
After being severely injured in a bus accident, she mostly painted self-portraits. Her political activism came later when she married fellow artist Diego Rivera. Her iconic identity and extraordinary artwork left behind a legacy that transcends and overcomes barriers of culture. Kahlo was constantly inspired to transform tradition into reinvention and became a world symbol for the modern, empowered and independent woman.
