This skateboard painting was inspired by the original movie Rollerball.  It is in response to the idea that corporations take over governance of the people after the governments have gone bankrupt.  The basic premise of the movie was that individuals did not matter and that the spectacle of sports was a mechanism used by corporations to control the masses much like the Colosseum in Rome or the modern day football stadiums.  The character 'Jonathan E' was the antagonist to the corporate paradigm.

Serious art has been the work of individual artists whose art has had nothing to do with style because they were not in the least connected with the style or the needs of the masses. Their work arose rather in defiance of their times. - Franz Marc
