      Frida Kahlo was a Mexican artist, best remembered for her self-portraits and paintings she would pour her feelings into. Kahlo had many traumas growing up and she expressed these feelings with paints and a canvas. As a child, Frida had polio and when she was only a teenager, she was in a traumatic bus accident she nearly died from that left her with multiple fractures in her spine, collarbone and ribs, a shattered pelvis, broken foot and dislocated shoulder. She was bedridden for nine months, so painting was her only escape.

She had many unique paintings, such as Roots, which depicted that she believed life can join in a single flow. She shared her thoughts, which were mostly sad, and this helped her cope with her reality, that she was stuck in a room with no way out. She was able to accept what her life had become through her paintings, and one can truly sympathize for her by her visuals.
