The Diary of Frida Kahlo: A New Perspective

During the last ten years of her life, Frida Kahlo made her Diary an intimate space, a shelter, an unfiltered mirror to deliver her personality. 

In The Diary of Frida Kahlo. A new look, Karen Cordero Reiman and Eduardo Casar invite us to feel it, to listen to it, to appreciate its visual and literary forms; to discover how both talents of the artist cohabit in their pages. Evoking the five senses and imagination, the drawings and words merge to move to other dimensions that give the viewer the possibility of listening to her voice as a child and to perceive her breath, to move with her beauty and to laugh with her rogue humor.

The diary of Frida Kahlo. A new look is an invitation to see and read it with other eyes, to find new meanings in it and to discover the keys to revising the art of being and to exist in silence.

Intimate Notebook inspired by Frida Kahlo

With the sensitivity and genius of an artist, in her personal diary, Frida manages to build for herself a path of self-knowledge and liberation, using images and words, and integrating multiple forms of expression: free association of ideas, doodles, collages drawings, paintings , poems, letters, narrations and stories - realistic and fantastic - of his own life.

Inspired by his diary we created this intimate Notebook, with the intention of offering a meeting space with oneself through art. This book is not intended to be a technical book for making art, it is an invitation to reflection, to creativity and to personal renewal.

History

To Frida Kahlo we know her, in great measure, by the intensity of her personal life: as a passionate wife of the painter Diego Rivera and as subject and content of her work; but, beyond her self-portraits and autobiographical expressions of her painting, Frida built herself as a work of art, as a continuous impulse of creation as the subject of her own invention and personal construction. She was a woman who was ahead of her time, who dared to be and feel outside the limits of conventions, and to live her profound capacity to love and to manifest her passions.
