Diego Rivera was a famous Mexican muralist who became greatly important globally due to the controversial political commentary and images of Communism that were consciously created within the paintings of Diego Rivera. He can also be considered one of the most historically significant North American artists in the 19th Century, especially in the context of his Latin American heritage due to his embracing of the muralist form of painting and his innovation of the genre by incorporating cultural and political messages into the art itself. Diego Rivera was born in 1886 in Guanajuato, Mexico. When he was still a young man he received a sponsorship for his artwork and was able to travel to Europe to study painting there. While in France and Spain, Rivera was exposed to the revolutionary Cubism of Picasso and Cezanne. As a result, many of the paintings of Diego Rivera began to display these influences in a prominent manner. After he went back to Mexico, Rivera became firmly entrenched in the new growing genre of painting: murals. He became interested in this rebirth of a method of painting that made art accessible to the daily lives of all citizens. By many accounts, Rivera found this style of art appealing because it served a great purpose in his opinion of easily spreading the messages that he believed in on a much grander scale than small, regularly-sized paintings. The murals of Diego Rivera were located in public spaces that could be enjoyed by a greater number of patrons than simply those individuals with enough money to attend galleries or purchase paintings outright. With these developments, public art began to find a new position of importance in Mexico and with Riveraís expansion of murals in the United States, the idea of public art and its importance began to grow there as well. Because murals are very similar to the Classical form of painting known as the fresco, Rivera is often credited with sparking the revival of the long dead form of painting. It had been mastered in the past by artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo and other Renaissance Masters. The word fresco specifically refers to the artistís act of painting saturated tones into wet plaster surfaces. The effect of this is that artistís painting becomes inseparable from the complete structure of the wall. Re-adopting this genre of painting to revive its popularity, Rivera found public and private commissions which allowed him to create murals. The murals of Diego Rivera were particularly accomplished because they embodied ideas about the cultures and political ideas that he identified with. Some of the most popular examples of Diego Rivera murals and paintings are: Man at the Crossroads, La Molendera, Epic of the Mexican People, Pan-American Unity, The Architect, Zapatista Landscape and Lenin in 1922. Most of the currently existing murals by Diego Rivera continue to be preserved in their original locations around Latin America and even in cities in the United States such as Detroit.
