Tamayo resisted the ruling 'revolutionary' Mexican painters such as David Alfaro Siqueiros and Diego Rivera. Partly due to this he spent a large part of his life in France and the United States. Although he was inspired by Cubism, Impressionism and Fauvism, he has always refused to include himself in a certain movement. Tamayo even developed his own method of printing, the 'Mixografia', which allows for a three dimensional print.
