Alan Coulson completed Foundation Studies in Art and Design at Harrogate College of Art and Design but is otherwise self-taught. His work was previously exhibited in the BP Portrait Award 2010–12 and at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters exhibitions in 2010–2013.

The portrait is of Coulson’s friend Jordan, whom he met through a mutual interest in skateboarding. On a cold October morning at the park in Hackney where they both skate, Coulson made the studies and photographs that became the starting point for the painting.
