This week we saw the new Frida Kahlo exhibition at London’s V&A Museum. What makes it so exciting is it doesn’t just focus on her paintings but on her lifestyle, beliefs and how she constructed her identity.
The exhibition explores how she used art to overcome life’s challenges and you really feel you get to know her as a person. It reminds us how important it’s to think about the overall context of lifestyle today.
Frida’s fascination with the self resonates in our selfie-obsessed era. Frida, Picasso, Dali and others used art as a means of communication in their day and we believe they were the social influencers of their time – it’s inspiring to make those comparisons.
