Diego Rivera

Diego Rivera is a prominent Mexican painter who gained recognition for his large wall works in fresco. For some time he lived in Paris and worked with the most famous artists in the world, such as Picasso and Modigliani.

Rivera was also a representative of Post Impressionism, but later his developed his own unique style which included big simple figures and extensive usage of colors. One can track some influence of Aztec culture on Rivera’s art. In general his style was a fusion of cubism, impressionism, expressionism, etc. I can also say that one can see many symbolical elements in his works, especially in his frescos.

His radical communistic believes brought him to Moscow and connect him with many political leaders.

Regarding his personal life, there is so much to tell about him. He was always very keen at women and he had four wives and at least one illegitimate child. But the most famous relationships he had with Frida Kahlo. First he was her friend who supported her in paintings and turned her attention on her own talent. Their marriage was not perfect though, involving many scandals and unfaithfulness. They were even once divorced, but then they remarried once again. After she passed away, he realized that she was the best part of his life.
