Frida Kahlo's Personal Photos on Exhibit at Artisphere

If you're a lover of Frida Kahlo's art, you may want to check out an exhibit featuring some of the rare photos and keepsakes that detail the celebrated Mexican artist's life. See the details after the jump.

Frida Kahlo is one of those artists whose work are so exceptional and emotional that you can’t help but take interest not only in her art, but also in her colorful life. The Mexican artist, known for her soulful paintings with a tinge of surrealism, drew inspiration from her own personal tragedies, physical and emotional pains, and tumultuous marriage.

If you’re a fan of her self-portraits and curious about her life, you might want to visit an ongoing exhibit which showcases some keepsakes and photographs of Kahlo (albeit cleverly made replicas, the original ones are housed at the Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico), and some that she even snapped herself. Called Frida Kahlo: Her Photos, the exhibit opened on February 23 at Artisphere’s Terrace Gallery, and will run until March 25.
