This need led to a new website launch which gives art fans an insight into the life and career of Diego Rivera as well as providing a gallery of his most significant paintings.
The artist himself was a famous muralist who took his ethnic style across to the United States where he taught others of the artistic qualities found with in the art scene of his native country.
Few Mexicans have managed to get international fame for their work but he impact of this artist has made it easier for some, with westerns now generally more interested in art from this region.
The growing influence of Mexican culture in the US should also increase the opportunities in the future for Mexicans there. Rivera will always be seen as one of the integral influences on this and his work continues to be exhibited across the United States and beyond. Few painters have managed to come from outside the western world and establish such a reputation and this just underlines his own qualities and also the way in which traditionally the western arts scene was not as ambitious as perhaps it liked to think, only recently taking in other styles to the mainstream in a significant way. Previously, only certain artists and individuals had become interested in artists from outside of Europe and North America.
The one-time wife of Rivera, Frida Kahlo, had herself an exceptional career which is also worthy of note though her impact came more after she had passed away at an early age whilst her husband was able to appreciate and use his fame whilst he was still alive.
There can be no doubt that these two artists demonstrated exceptional innovation which really deceives to be take note of by anyone looking to understand more about artistic influences to have come from outside the regions of the western world and were able to give us whole new ideas.
