Artist of The Week: Diego Rivera

The Flower Vendor

So we took a break in December, but now we're back with the newest artist of the week, Diego Rivera. I've always been drawn to his work because of its unique style and depictions of the Mexican countryside. You can easily spot a Diego Rivera painting by his use of simplistic forms and vivid color. Rivera was a controversial figure and known communist. He was also married to another one of my favorite artists Frida Kahlo.
