My artist name is Diego Rivera he is a Mexican painter who produced
muralson social themes and who ranks one of my countries greatest
artists. He was born in Guanajuato and educated at the San Carlos
Academy ofFineArts , in Mexico City. he studiedpainting in Europe
between 1907 and 1921, becoming familiar with the innovative cubist
forms of the French painter Paul Cezanneand Pablo Picasso.
In 1921 Riviera returned to Mexico and took a prominent part in
revival of mural painting initiated by artists and sponsored by the
government . Believing that art should serve the working people and be
readily available to them , he concentrated on painting large frescoes,
concerning the history and social problems of Mexico,
on the walls of public buldings.His works during 1930s included
frescoes the Ministry of Educational Mexico City and in the National
Rivera was an active member of the Mexican Communist party , and
he painted murals in the National Palace , Mexico City 1929, and the
Palace Cortes , Cuernavaca1930 .In 1929 Riviera married Frida Kahlo
who is now considered to have been a leading 20th century Mexican
I think what I like the most the murals that he painted I likedhow he
drew the Indian people their faces the scenery , the palace and his style.
Riviera’s murals are rich in archeological detail and painted in sharply
outlined , linear style. Most of them have clear , three dimensional
figures in a shallow space , although a deep spatial extension of
landscape appears at the top of some works . Rivera also executed easel
paintings and portraits and designed and built his Mexico City house ,
the Anahuacalli, which is now a museumhousing the extensive
collection of pre-Columbian art that he left for Mexican people . I liked
the water colors that Riviera used for the murals and the way he painted
