About Pollock Studio Teddy Bear 2
Medicom Toy’s Sync Jackson Pollock Studio Teddy Bear is a collaboration with the Pollock-Krasner House / Stony Brook Foundation. This teddy bear features the iconic 20th-century American artist Jackson Pollock’s “drip painting” style, developed by the artist in the early 1940’s. In 1930 Jackson Pollock moved to New York City and enrolled at the Art Students League, studying under Thomas Hart Benton with whom they became close with. For Jackson, the figure of Thomas Hart Benton represented, as he said, “something against which to react very strongly, later on” which influenced his departure from figuration and praise for abstraction. Early paintings in Pollock’s career demonstrate his interests in improvisational Jazz, Navajo sand paintings, the Mexican muralists, African sculpture, prehistoric and Egyptian. In 1945 he married Lee Krasner, who was a successful artist in her own right and contributed greatly to the promotion and the legacy of Jackson Pollock’s work during and after his lifetime.
