ED HARRIS IS POLLOCK

ED HARRIS IS POLLOCK

Ed Harris fulfiled his long-held dream in 2000 when he released ‘Pollock’, a film about American painter Jackson Pollock. The actor and for first time director had read the book biography and put all the effort into taking artist´s life to cinema.

For nearly all of the 20th century Greenwich Village (NYC) was a central location for artists from around the world. As the 1940s turned into the 1950s, the Village hit its most active time, as musicians, poets, and especially visual artists began to flock there. Nearly all of the Abstract Expressionists, including Robert Motherwell, Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko lived in the neighborhood. In the late 1960s Andy Warhol increased the publicity of this already popular area.

We really love the atmosphere of those decaces when artists lived and painted in those brick and industrial buildings. Several fashion brands like Ralph Lauren have replicated those locations in their advertising campaigns to enhace the purest american look. We are launching a new boxer style playing with a pattern made of colour paint strokes that recreates the work clothes of the painters at their studios.
