Frida Khalo painted in her own way and without preconceived ideas. Driven by her strong personality and her independent spirit, and flouting social conventions, she speaks in her paintings about her life tormented by her obsessive painful relationship with her body and about her relationship with the world. In 1953, she herself said to Time Magazine: “I never painted dreams. I painted my own reality.” Her idea of art was playful and unpredictable: “it’s the magical surprise of finding a lion in the wardrobe, where you were sure of finding shirts”. The Frida room is a tribute to passions, to those who face their fears bravely, and live intensely.
