I made this after watching Michael Jackson's Beat It live concert in Yokohama 1987 and I was blown away. In the video, you can clearly see the gritty, blurry, vintage quality look of the tape. Bright lights, reflective lights everywhere. MJ wore a flashy red jacket with white stripes on the shoulders. White shirt and black pants. The stage looked pale yellow from far away. I wanted to portray the iconic scene into canvas and wanted it to look as if it was made in that period of time.
