La Casa Azul of Frida Kahlo


You know how some people seem to infuse everything they do with their personal style? 4 Years ago I made my first visit to Frida Kahlo's home: La Casa Azul (The blue house). I was shocked. That house is so beautiful and it screams "Art" in every room and in every corner of the big patio. I can easily imagine her painting and working in her journal in one of the beautiful corners of the patio. This house was her. This place is pure magic. And you could spot it from miles away. Frida was one of those persons who really had style and she imprinted in everything she touch. And that just one of the reasons of why I like her so much. And this painting means just that. She is her paintings. She is her home. She was pure art.

i couldnt agree with you more I had the chance to visit the casa azul about three years ago and ive been inspired by it ever since. She is one of my favorite artists and to see her creative space and her bed where she slept and her kitchen were she cooked was such a dream come true. Thanks for bringing back the memories with your beautiful painting. :)
