Description

An update of Diego Rivera’s famous fresco, Man at the Crossroads. Destroyed for political reasons in 1934 by the Rockefeller family. Repainted in Mexico City and renamed - Man, Controller of the Universe.

In a time of global economic distress, an oligarch's contracts came with the right to silence an artist, and erase an enormous physical work from one of the world's most famous locations - 30 Rockefeller Center. Pressured by client and peers alike, Rivera found himself at that familiar crossroads - can I remain the captain of my own artistic destiny in a world of commerce?
