Go inside the magical world of Frida Kahlo as she recalls an early childhood memory of her imaginary friend. Without trying to imitate Frida's unmistakable style, Gianluca Folì captures this fragment from her diary through stunning illustrations that provide a colorful backdrop for Frida's powerful voice. In these words, children will be given a window into the mind of this great artist and the great joy and happiness her imaginary friend brought to her during times of struggle. Along with biographical information about Frida Kahlo’s childhood and her later work, The Two Fridas is a celebration of Frida Kahlo, her culture, and the magical, joyful, secret-filled friendship she shared and later captured in her painting. Children will be encouraged to explore their own imaginary worlds, open up conversations, and build on their own creativity.

About the Artist, Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo (born July 6, 1907, Coyoacán, Mexico—died July 13, 1954, Coyoacán) was a Mexican painter best known for her uncompromising and brilliantly colored self-portraits that deal with such themes as identity, the human body, and death. Although she denied the connection, she is often identified as a Surrealist. In addition to her work, Kahlo was known for her tumultuous relationship with muralist Diego Rivera (married 1929, divorced 1939, remarried 1940).
