Día de los Muertos with Frida Kahlo

Walking through the Frida Kahlo exhibition at the Instituto Tomie Ohtake in São Paulo was surreal. I have been to many museums and galleries, but there are only a few exhibitions that give me a heartfelt feeling that goes beyond admiration for creativity. This was certainly one of them.

There Frida Kahlo was, all of her emotions and feelings neatly framed and on display for us to see. All of her pain, sadness, joy and emotions. It felt like I was meeting her or walking into her life. The experience was beautiful, emotional, and an honor all at the same time. I walked through this show on Día de los Muertos and it felt great to pay respect to the spirit of one of the world’s greatest artists to ever do it.

I did not take many photos, but here is a quick look. Learn more about this exhibition here.
