What is the meaning of the colors for this painting?

“El Titiritero” (2015) (Acrylic on canvas- 1.50 X 1.50 M) By Jose Arevalo 

As everybody knows a puppeteer is a person who manipulates an inanimate object that might be shaped like human, animal or mythical creature.

My inspiration on this character has been based on combination and contrast of red color that represents the energy, passion and power that puppeteer needs for expressing feelings to others; the yellow background provides the bright light and warmest the sunshine provides, used to call people attention. The green outfit symbolizes the promise and confidence of the actor ,and the last color; Black, the black shadow provide the power, elegance, mystery that  this character needs to success.
