Favorite thing: Mexico has a strong tradition of mural paintings that mainly comes from the time of the mexican revolution just under a hundred years ago.
Artists like Diego Rivera, David Siqueiros and José Orozco were some of the most important mural artists.
Their works can be found on many public buildings in Mexico City and around the country.
Detroit in the USA has some very good works by Diego Riviera too by the way.
These painters were generally quite political and left wing intellectuals.
Their hangout in Mexico City was the suburb of Coyacan where they gatherd to paint and discuss the world situation.
