It is almost a century since Diego Riviera (husband of Frida Khalo) started to paint walls in Mexico.
From originals by the master himself,
to large commissioned pieces in public thoroughfares,
from shopkeepers decorating their storefronts,
to bathroom walls,
and local artists expressing themselves in a myriad of styles and mediums,
Mural painting is vividly, colourfully, politicaly, culturally, and historically alive and well in Mexico.
