Diego Rivera Celebrated

by

Diego Rivera was a larger than life figure living in the first half of the 20th century in North America. He and his art made a lasting impression on those who came in contact with him and it. He created bold and often beautiful murals and paintings with very serious and personal themes of the oppression of man. The politics and economy of the era were controlled by the elite at the expense of the peasants and very poor. This all had great impact on Diego and his art. He was a champion of the indigenous people of the continent.

At times he was unprincipled but more often rash. He often bent the truth to fit his current beliefs. However I believe his intentions were generally good at the time he uttered them but not always thought out.
