The motive was created for the 85th birthday of Victor Jara. He is one of the best known poets, musician and political activist in Chile who supported then president Salvador Allende and the Unidad Popular. Their colours are red, black, white, blue and were used for this picture. The quote ‘deja la vida volar’ (let life fly) is taken from Jara’s song with the same name. Victor Jara was murdered on the 16th of September 1973 by Augusto Pinochet’s henchmen.
