Jorge González Camarena (1908 – 1980) was a Mexican muralist, painter and sculptor.

Some of his works depict soldiers in violent combat - a metaphor for Mexico's historic clash of cultures - and some are character examinations. At different moments, his work can represent the experience of alien peoples living side by side, or express an irreducible mystery at the heart of indian culture.

For his portrait of Michelangelo Buonarotti, which hangs at his birthplace at Caprese, he was awarded the Ordine al Merito della Repubblica Italiana in 1967. [1] González received the Mexican National Prize for Arts and Sciences in 1970.
