Lady Pink’s Women’s Bohemian Trucker (Lady Pink started writing 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:
Born in Ecuador and raised in New York City, Lady Pink began writing graffiti in 1979 and soon became well known as the preeminent female artist in the male-dominated graffiti subculture of the 1980s. Actively painting subway trains from 1979 to 1985, Pink became immortalized as a cult figure upon the release of the seminal motion picture Wild Style in 1982, in which she had a starring role.
While still in high school, Pink began exhibiting paintings in art galleries, and at the age of 21 had her first solo show at the Moore College of Art. As a leading participant in the rise of graffiti-based art, Lady Pink’s canvases have been acquired by leading international art collections including the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, and the Groninger Museum in Holland.
Today, Lady Pink continues to create fine art and shares her 30 years of experience by holding mural workshops with teens and actively lecturing college students throughout the Northeast.
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.
