This September, The Hundreds is honoring the cultural-historical gift left by the world’s most famous Mexican female artist, Frida Kahlo. Celebrated for her art that followed the themes of self-discovery and life & death, Kahlo simultaneously documented the Mexican societal cultural movement of the ‘30s by mixing fantasy with her reality. Kahlo’s artistic career has been stamped with agony after being involved in a severe bus accident at the age of 18 that deterred her ability to walk for three months and left her with lifelong chronic pain. Forced to abandon medical school, Kahlo refound her passion for painting during her time on bed rest. With a custom easel that allowed her to paint in bed and a mirror placed on the canopy, she began her famous, recurring series of self-portraitures.

Her artistic style changed after her marriage to renowned Mexican painter, Diego Rivera, as the couple went through the rough phases of a troubling romance. Constantly on an introspection path, Khalo’s work left an iconic historical print that will continue to be remembered for years to come. While reaching newfound accolades during her lifetime, such as being the first Mexican artist to be featured in the Louvre’s collection, Kahlo’s artwork also received posthumous praise after being marked as “one of the most significant artists of the twentieth century.” Along her route of self-discovery, Kahlo often broke traditional societal norms when experimenting with her gender, sexuality, and wardrobe. Her nonconformist sentiments inspired the likeness of Chicano communities including feminist and LGBTQ+ movements, all of which underline the fight for self-expression and identity.

We are proud to highlight the impact Frida Kahlo made on Latinx culture with a collection that highlights the icon’s self-portraits, the photography inspired by her resilience, and a take of our Adam Bomb mascot in a traditional sugar skull iteration.
