American painter Jackson Pollock has been honored for a second time with a Be@rbrick 1000% collectible by Japanese brand Medicom Toy. The bear statuette follows 2015’s version, measuring 70cm and fully decorated in the artist’s “drip” style of painting.
Pollock, a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement, was best known for his splatter paintings, which he created by using various tools as well as paintbrushes to produce large-scale chaotic paintings. The artist, who struggled with alcoholism, died aged 44 in an alcohol-related car wreck in 1956.
Since his death, his hugely influential work has been celebrated with retrospectives at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and The Tate in London, among others.
The Jackson Pollock Be@rbrick 1000% collectible is currently retailing for $620 at WOAW in Hong Kong.
