The Hundreds x Jackson Pollock artist collaboration in Los Angeles, California, July 7th, 2017.
“I want to express my feelings, not illustrate them”—Jackson Pollock
Jackson Pollock is one of Bobby Hundreds’s favorite artists: “You’d think that after centuries of artistic exploration, there’d be nothing new under the sun in terms of technique. But, pushed to the edge—both in medium and personal life—Jackson Pollock stumbled onto a new frontier. He recast painting for another generation of artists to dismantle, debate, and develop.”Bobby said.
Regarded as the “greatest living painter” during his lifetime, Jackson Pollock spearheaded the Abstract Expressionist movement by developing an energetic, radical style that changed the way we think about art today. “I have no fear of making changes, destroying the image, etc., because the painting has a life of its own. I try to let it come through.” -Jackson Pollock
A detail from Pollock’s paint-splattered studio floor appears as a graphic element throughout The Hundreds collection, which includes a canvas work jacket, a series of printed T-shirts, headwear, a skateboard deck, an ash tray, shorts, and a puzzle.
The collections slip the leash and stick to its own unique and unfettered, for this reason, the feeling expressed was authentic and sincerely.
The Hundreds x Jackson Pollock capsule collection will be available starting July 7th, at The Hundreds flagship stores, Online Shop, and select authorized retailers worldwide.
