Diego Rivera

Diego Rivera

by Mike Venezia
Diego Rivera was a famous Mexican mural painter. He studied in Europe, but developed his own distinctive style. He believed that his paintings should be seen by everyone, not just those people who could afford to purchase art work. Many of his paintings make statements about revolutionary ideas.
