Viva la Vida

Updated: May 7

This was a title of one of the many paintings by the famous artist Frida Kahlo. The main title being - 'Viva la Vida Watermelons', meaning Long Live Life or The Life Lives. Throughout my website you will find many quotes and phrases by the Mexican artist. One of my favourite ones being,

"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."

Frida had many challenges in her life and one being her own mental health, art was a medium in which she used to battle through these challenges and express her feelings and emotions.

I have been lucky enough to have seen her artwork and clothing in person twice, at a gallery in Rome and one in London. If you want to read more on this wonderful artist and view her artworks, then look at the website below.
