Diego Rivera may not have been the only Mexican muralist, but he was certainly the most famous.
Rivera began drawing at the age of three, a year after his twin brother’s death. He had been caught
drawing on the walls. His parents, rather than punishing him, installed chalkboards and canvas on the
walls to inspire him. Together with David Alfaro Siquieros and José Clemente Orozco, they brought art
out of the museums and into the streets, inviting international controversy at every turn. JAMMIN’ one
oh one five recognizes Diego Rivera.
