In Siqueiros helped found the Syndicate of Revolutionary Mexican Painters, Sculptors and Engravers, which addressed the problem of widespread public access through its union paper, El Machete.
That year the paper published — "for the proletariat of the world" — a manifesto, which Siqueiros helped author, on the necessity of a "collective" art, which would serve as "ideological propaganda" to educate the masses and overcome bourgeois, individualist art. Soon after, Siqueiros painted his famous mural Burial of a Worker in the stairwell of the Colegio Chico. The fresco features a group of pre-Conquest style workers in a funeral procession who are carrying a giant coffin, decorated with a hammer and sickle.
Eventually, the entire painting was whitewashed by the new Minister of Education who succeeded Vasconcelos.
A feud within the union over whether to cease publishing El Machete or lose financial support for the mural projects left Siqueiros at the forefront, as Rivera left in protest of the decision to uphold politics over artistic opportunity. Despite being let go from his post under the Department of Education in , Siqueiros remained deeply entrenched in labor activities, in the union as well as the Mexican Communist Party, until he was jailed and eventually exiled in the early s. After spending many years in Mexico and heavily involved in radical political activities, Siqueiros went to Los Angeles in to continue his career as a muralist.
Working in a collective unit that experimented with new painting techniques using modern devices such as airbrushes, sprayguns and projectors,  Siqueiros and his team of collaborators painted two major murals. It depicts a group of workers of mixed ethnicities listening to an angry labor agitator's speech during a break in the workday.
Siqueiros' other significant public Los Angeles mural, Tropical America full name: Oprimida y Destrozada por los Imperialismos , or Tropical America: Oppressed and Destroyed by Imperialism  , was commissioned shortly after the unveiling of Street Meeting , and was to be painted on the exterior wall of the Plaza Art Center that faced the busy Olvera Street.

Siqueiros' Tropical America depicts the United States' imperialism in Latin America, a much more radical theme than was intended for the mural. Although Tropical America received generally favorable criticism, some viewed the mural as "Communist propaganda", which led to a partial covering in and a total whitewash in It became accessible to the public on its 80th birthday, October 9, In the early s, including his time spent in Lecumberri Prison , Siqueiros produced a series of politically themed lithographs, many of which were exhibited in the United States.http://www.cantinesanpancrazio.it/components/maqenuwy/282-trovare-password.php
Como Jesus = Just Like Jesus : Max Lucado :
He wanted the image — an Indian peon being crucified by American oppression — to be accessible from multiple angles. Instead of just constructing "an enlarged easel painting," he realized that the mural "must conform to the normal transit of a spectator. He was unceremoniously deported from the United States for political activity the same year.
There he also ran a political art workshop in preparation for the General Strike for Peace and May Day parade. The young Jackson Pollock attended the workshop and helped build floats for the parade. In fact, Siquieros has been credited with teaching drip and pour techniques to Pollock that later resulted in his "allover" paintings, made from to , and which constitute Pollock's greatest achievement.
These ephemeral works possessed the ability to reach the masses in a way different from mural painting because they were accessible to a wide audience outside of an institution or gallery. The Siqueiros Experimental Workshop only lasted for a little over a year until Siqueiros went to fight in the Spanish Civil War in April , but their floats were featured in both the and May Day Parades in Manhattan's garment district. Continuing to produce several works throughout the late s - such as Echo of a Scream and The Sob , both now at the Museum of Modern Art in New York — Siqueiros also led a number of experimental art workshops for American students.
He spent the better part of with the Spanish Republican Army fighting Francisco Franco 's fascist coup before returning to Mexico City. After his return, in a stairwell of the Sindicato Mexicano de Electricistas , Siqueiros collaborated with Spanish refugee Josep Renau and the International Team of Plastic Artists to develop one of his most famous works, Portrait of the Bourgeoisie , warning against the dual foes of capitalism and fascism.
An armed, brave-faced revolutionary, of unnamable class or ethnicity, confronts the machine, and a blue sky on the ceiling flanked by electrical towers displays hope for the proletariat in technological and industrial advances. Before the mural's completion in , however, Siqueiros was forced into hiding and later exiled for his direct involvement in an attempt to assassinate Leon Trotsky, then in exile in Mexico City from the Soviet Union: The attacking party was composed of men who had served under Siqueiros in the Spanish Civil War and of miners from his union.
After thoroughly raking the house with machine gun fire and explosives, the attackers withdrew in the belief that nobody could have survived the assault. Trotsky was unhurt and lived till August, when he was killed with an ice pick wielded by an assassin .
