About Medicom Toy – Jackson Pollock Studio Ver. 2 Bearbrick – 1000%
Medicom Toy’s collaboration with the Pollock-Krasner House/Stony Brook Foundation again to produce this Jackson Pollock Studio Ver. 2 Bearbrick in the size version 1000% featuring the iconic artistic “drip” style of one of the most influential 20th century American Artist of the New York School. Jackson Pollock enrolled at the Art Students League in New York after he moved in 1930 with his brother Charles, and studied under Thomas Benton. Pollock’s quest towards abstraction stood as a strong rebellious artistic contrast to his mentor, Benton’s figurative art. During the early 1940’s Pollock began to produce his iconic action paintings, this time in his career is known as Pollock’s “Drip period“. Pollock’s Action Painting was motivated by a 1939 Picasso exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, where he observed that other artists like Willem de Kooning developed their own signature independent styles like Picasso did with Cubism. Although after his death Pollock did not have artists emulate his action paintings, his quest towards artistic experimentation made him one of the most influential artists of the 20th century.

About Jackson Pollock
Born on January 28, 1912, as the youngest of five sons in Cody, Wyoming. Paul Jackson Pollock’s Westerner identity would play a significant role in the development of his artistic style, often viewed by his admirers as uniquely American, self-reliant and independent. After his abusive alcoholic father Leroy Pollock left the family, his brother Charles became like a father figure to Jackson and also awakened his interest in the arts. In 1930, both Charles and Jackson moved to New York City and enrolled at the Art Students League, studying under Thomas Hart Benton with whom they became close with. The artistic experimentation of Pollock’s paintings reflects the strong influence of the Surrealist psychic automatism present in the works of artists like Joan Miró and Salvador Dalí. Pollock’s Action Painting was also motivated by a 1939 Picasso exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, where other artists like Willem de Kooning were inspired to develop their own signature independent styles like Picasso did with Cubism.
