At 18 years old she suffered a tremendous bus accident and had to get 35 operations. While Frida was in recovery she had decided to teach herself how to paint. The art Frida had done was reflecting her physical ordeal.

Mexican folk art was Frida’s inspiration for her artwork style.   All of Frida’s artworks depict her wearing traditional Mexican clothing and makeup. Bold colors were used in the artwork that made it stand out.
