Mural Painting Two of Mexico’s great muralists, Diego Rivera and José Chávez Morado, were born in the State of Guanajuato,  Rivera here in the Capital, and Chávez Morado in nearby Silao. Chávez Morado studied in the US and eventually moved to the Capital with his wife, also a painter, Olga Costa.   The Rivera family home and the home of Chávez Morado and Olga Costa are now museums.
