This artwork is a replica of Arzola’s mural located at the Carlos Jáuregui Station at the Buenos Aires subway. Jáuregui was an Argentine activist for LGBTQ+ rights and the organizer of the first Pride in Argentina. He died from HIV-AIDS-related illness at the age of 38.
In 2017, Arzola was commissioned by the city of Buenos Aires to create a mural for the first station dedicated to an LGBT+ icon in Latin America. The original mural, measuring 14 meters, honors the civil rights struggle of the LGBTQ+ community in Argentina. The main portrait of Jáuregui celebrates his legacy as a leader and fighter for civil rights.
Daniel Arzola is known for his bold and colorful illustrations, which represent a combination of his art and activism.
