The abstraction illustrates the artists keen insight into the alienation of his subjects. The flashes of color inside the bar serve as stark contrast to the suffocating black and white world that lurks outside. The captivating use of "empty space" serves as both a metaphor for the vacuum of society that the work's protagonists must survive in, and a mirror into the blankness that these cultural warriors must battle against to maintain their dignity.

Genius.

(There. Happy now?)
