Began to paint after her catastrophic bus accident that was almost fatal. This experience is a reoccurring theme in her work. Kahlo was also influenced by indigenous Mexican heritage and culture, which is shown by her use of ‘bright colors, dramatic symbolism and primitive style’. Although described as a surrealist, due to her surrealist renderings alongside her depiction of Mexican tradition, Kahlo rejects the title instead stating that she paints her reality rather than her dreams. The group is interested in Kahlo due to her incorporation of her -sometimes traumatic- experiences within her work. In this way, through symbolism, Kahlo injects some of her own identity in her pieces; especially considering 55 of her paintings were portraits. Similar to Kahlo, we hope that remnants of our separate identities remain in our collected, shared one within our distorted portraits.
