Crash’s Zap Trucker (Crash started writing in 1975) Each jacket is packaged in a commemorative box bearing a stamp reminiscent of the artist’s “tag” and comes with a print of the artwork on the jacket that measures 9 inches by 12 inches and is not signed or numbered.
For the Levi’s® x MOCA collaboration, the brand has partnered with pioneers in street art and graffiti who are also featured in MOCA’s Art in the Streets exhibition:
Crash – Born and raised in South Bronx, John Matos began writing graffiti in 1974. The aspiring 14-year-old adopted the moniker “Crash” and quickly graduated to painting subway trains. Turns in the seminal graffiti films Style Wars, and Wild Style in the early 1980s solidified his street fame. Currently, his work resides in numerous prestigious collections including, MoMA, and the The Brooklyn Museum, The Groninger Museum, and the Bronx Council on the Arts.
Since it was first introduced in 1967, the Levi’s® Trucker Jacket has served as an iconic canvas for artists around the world, from the boogie-down Bronx to the favelas of Brazil. Beginning this week, the Levi’s® Trucker Jacket will serve as the canvas for a special collaboration celebrating the brand’s partnership with the Art in the Streets exhibition at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA). All proceeds from the sale of the jackets will benefit MOCA and the community programs it supports.
Open edition, 50 Jackets per artist. No Returns.
