Inky Beer Factoid: December 8

Diego Rivera with Wife Frida Kahlo

On this day in 1886, Diego Rivera was born in Guanajuato, Mexico. Diego was most well known for his amazing murals commenting on society and politics and his marriage to Frida Kahlo. Interpreted from the self portrait below, Diego was a beer drinker and valued a nice drink (hence the glass) with his pipe.
