Kenny Scharf Levi's Trucker Jacket
Kenny Scharf’s Dark Summit Trucker (Kenny started painting in 1979) 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:
Kenny Scharf first gained recognition among the fertile East Village art community of the 1980s, developing a proto-Pop graffiti style in 1979 at the creative dawn of the medium alongside fellow artists such as Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Futura.
Infused with a playful energy heavily influenced by vintage cartoons, Scharf’s whimsical characters quickly transitioned to his fine art paintings and sculptures, which fueled a gallery career that firmly established him as a legend of modern Pop Art.
A master of aerosol art, Scharf continues to create graffiti artwork and in 2010 executed a massive mural on Houston Street in downtown NYC originally inaugurated by his close friend Keith Haring, a detail of which appears on the back of this jacket.
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.
