Other works by David Alfaro Siqueiros

Victim of Fascism

A.) I chose this piece of work because I felt her looks like me and it would be fun to replicate.B.) Big details I noticed were the scars, his tattered clothes, and the ropes on his hands.C.) The maajor minor detail was the way the man was positioned. It took a lot of core strength to keep myself up to take the picture.D.) It did not take long for me to set up everything like the box, the paint on my back, and the bricks. All of that went efficiently the hardest part was just taking the picture. My mother helped me set everything up like the setting, paint, and ropes. She also was my photographer.E.) I used computer enhancement (iPhone) to edit my final picture. I added a vintage effect to my final replication.

Kill Cause I'm Hungry!How did I end up in this place?This certainly is not where I belong.The Mexican government is starting to crack down.Family, friends, they will all be just a memory soon.I am surprised I am still breathing.I had never received such a brutal beating before.The will of a man is always tested.And today, mine did not break one bit.Then again, I do not consider myself "weak"These marks on my back? Battle Scars.This rope on my wrists? No big deal.This tattered cloth called pants? Don't need them.What I do need though is a change.Today's experience has opened my blind eyes.These people need to be stopped at all costs.Once I am free of these ropes,Their lives will be in my hands.I will murder every one of those soldiers.Fear will be stricken in their hearts.I will show them the animal I have become.I will have revenge and blood rain all over me!No one will be able to contain me!Their spirit to survive will be ripped into pieces!I will show no mercy, as these creatures did to me!Whoever crosses my path, will be never heard from again!Just as soon as I get out of these ropes...

Replication

David Alfaro Siqueiros was born in Chihuahua City, Mexico, on December 28, 1896. In 1908 he went to Mexico City to study art and architecture at the Franco-English College. In 1910 the Mexican Revolution erupted, and Siqueiros became involved in strikes, and also led a successful strike at the San Carlos Academy that changed the teaching methods. When Siquieros turned 18 he joined the Mexican Revolution army and worked his way up to captain. He joined the Communist party working to dethrone Mexico's military dictator, Victoriano Huerta. While in the army he teamed up with Diego Rivera, and Javier Guerro to create El Machete, a weekly paper that skyrocketed Alfaro's artistic career and became the centerpiece of the country's Communist party.
