The liquidated rooster sportsman is akin to his "visual attacks" series and highlights his obsession with brand logos. While reading a Superman comic book, he noticed that his logo was dripping when weakened by kryptonite. He finds a strong symbol to apply in the public space to logos that symbolize the power of capital; a way to highlight the excesses of the titans of globalization.
