Murals


From the frescos of archiological ruins to hoarding around repairs of the Palacio de Bella Artes mural painting is everywhere in Mexico City.

The most vibrant mural scene was in the post revolution period of the 1920-30s centred around Rivera, Siquueiros and Orozco who were commissioned to decorate the new public buildings.

Themes included national identity and social reform.
