Additional Details: Limited Edition Serigraph published by Marco Fine Arts Contemporary Atelier and released as part of the large portfolio and book entitled "The American Dream". In his youth, Indiana lived in an abandoned warehouse for 12 years in lower Manhattan. He devised his own meter to syphon gas from the city grid for himself and his fellow denizens, many who would go on to have their own illustrious careers in the arts. This was a tribute to his 12 years of free gas. The circles, ringed by numbers, are references to gas meters. The use of the black and yellow color scheme invoke a "hazard" sign design.
