About Teddy Bear Jackson Pollock Studio
In collaboration with the Pollock-Krasner House/Stony Brook Foundation, Medicom Toy’s Sync Jackson Pollock Studio releases this beautiful teddy bear Jackson Pollock 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.
