Manera continues his head long plunges into American pop culture with his interpretation of a product (in this case a luxury passenger train from the 1920’s known as The Chief) from days long passed. The yellow paint has been smeared by hand, like a young finger painter, which creates a modern update of sorts to a bygone era of commercial graphic art.
