Frida Khalo became known for her incredible ability to channel her pain into spectacular art. She survived polio as a child, leaving her body weakened, and then survived a bus accident which left her with chornic pain for the rest of her life. She used her experiences and her pain to show her internal world to the public through her self taught skills with painting and art. She has since become one of the worlds most easily recognizable artists and continues to inspire people everyday, even since her death. She is an absolute icon and simply had to be part of our first Icons release.
