David Alfaro Siqueiros
Mexican, 1896–1974
Follow

David Alfaro Siqueiros was a leading figure in the Mexican school of great mural painters, alongside José Clemente Orozco and Diego Rivera. Siqueiros was wildly prolific in his career; his work often featured social and political subjects, and demonstrated his influences, including Francisco Goya, religious art, and Italian Futurism. Siqueiros’ works are distinguished for their use of dynamic perspective, monumental forms, dramatic use of shadow, and a limited color palette. In addition to painting, Siqueiros was an avid political activist with a tumultuous personal history; he once led a student strike against San Carlos Academy, and his more violent activities landed him in jail and, eventually, exile.
