The mural is placed on the stone wall of the tenement house at 7 Szwedzka Street in Warsaw. The work from 2011 stylistically strongly refers to Pop art. The male figure resembles a man from the Richard Hamilton collage, "Just what is it that makes today's homes so different, so appealing?". This image is among the most famous in British post-war art. It has come to define the rise of consumer society in the mid to late 1950s and is an icon of Pop art. Hamilton collage was not the same Pop Art envisioned by artists like Roy Lichtenstein or Andy Warhol: Hamilton’s work was far more critical and pointed.
