    • We couldn’t find anything specific about this exact work, but we did find this interesting excerpt in an interview with the artist in the Santiago Times:

      The artwork of Inti, or INTI, can be seen from Paris to Lebanon, where his brightly colored murals span over sky-high buildings in the city centers. From images of clowns to symbols of religious idols and political slants, Inti’s art embodies Chilean culture while sparking a commentary on the ongoing struggle of poverty within the country.
      “I’m inspired by the Latin American people and culture before the Spanish invasion. The indigenous original towns, culture, people, and the continent in general before the European influence,” he says. “Difference is not a bad thing, it’s what enriches a culture.”
