This window into city life is brilliantly shown in his piece, "Strung Out" (figure 1).  The female is passively leaning against a brick wall and appears solemn and delicate. Her attire, however, is consistent with the "urban rebel": leather jacket, ripped jeans and heavy eye makeup.  This imagery evokes a sense of edge and defiance, despite the intrinsic softness of her sex. This scene is complimented by the background through the use of jagged brush strokes and bold primary colors, representing the vigor of her urban territory.
