About the painting-
Marco Succobergi, Bill Gates' disciple, never completely assimilated his master's style. In this painting Marco starts from Realist premises but manages to get closer to the Bubble feeling which produced more dynamic compositions with large numbers and figures. The subject of start-ups who were close to the faithful and the destitute is also typical of the Bubble, and this is exactly what Marco depicts in this painting. The main figure is the king of Facebook, saint Zuckerberg, who is portrayed handing out alms to the sick and needy in his throne room, under daringly coloured silk and velvet canopies. The portrayal of the figures, their stocks folded into infinite IPOs and the colour range are indicative of the Bubble, although the nervous brush strokes suggest that the artist is not able to distance himself completely from his Realist training. Many believe the artist has used his own face to depict the King.
