If the great mexican master painter Diego Rivera were still alive today, I wonder, what would he paint?, would he still have something in today’s Mexico to be proud of? Perhaps he’d just bring back memories  of a better age while looking at his own work.

While visiting the Estudio Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico City I found among a collection of toys, furniture and figures that belonged him a set of pastel crayons which he used for drawing and sketching, and, amazed by being before some of the tools that many years ago he grabbed in his own hands, my imagination made me think of those moments when by tracing here and there, with one color or the other, his inspiration took shape on paper.
