About Frida Kahlo Limited Edition Ballpoint Pen - Vida y Muerte - ACME Studio

This ACME Studio Frida Kahlo Limited Edition Ballpoint Pen titled "Vida Y Muerte", translating in Spanish to Life and Death features two iconic self-portraits by the Mexican Surrealist artist, Frida Kahlo. One features Kahlo as we knew her, the other has her face made up in the sugar skull. This pen has a limited edition of 1,000 pieces. The pen comes with one black ballpoint refill and is presented in a custom wooden box with a black sleeve and ACME literature. Frida Kahlo was a Mexican painter who is best known for her self-portraits. Kahlo’s life began and ended in Mexico City, in her home known as the Blue House. Her work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous tradition and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form. Mexican culture and Amerindian cultural tradition are important in her work, which has been sometimes characterized as naïve art or folk art. Kahlo had a volatile marriage with the famous Mexican artist Diego Rivera. She suffered lifelong health problems, many caused by a traffic accident she survived as a teenager. Recovering from her injuries isolated her from other people, and this isolation influenced her works, many of which are self-portraits of one sort or another.

    Frida Kahlo was an inspiration to a nation in a time that Mexican identity was beginning to come into its own. Frida was both a perpetual feminist icon and a monument to Latin American literature. The bulk of her work, while highly personal, also found within it a voice that spoke to an entire nation. She will always remain for her signature style and the unflinching truth conveyed by her images. Pieces of Frida Kahlo, such as The Frame illustrate how personal and important her artwork was in shaping her life. By allowing herself an outlet for her vast interior life, she brought a simple, unadulterated beauty to the real world. Often thought of like a surrealist, she would deny the title, claiming that, unlike dreamlike and subconscious imagery the Surrealists dealt with, her imagery was taken from her own life. Phenomenal talent and a highly individualistic and introspective person, Kahlo will always remain for her honesty and her deeply personal works. Kahlo inspired a nation and countless artists.
