Andre’s Rigid Trucker (Andre started painting in 1985)
Mr. André – André began his painting career on the walls of Paris in 1985 and quickly became one of the city’s most active graffiti artists. Sidestepping the route of traditional letter taggers, André distinguished himself with the innovation of his signature character, “Mr. A.” 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:
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.
Limited to 50 Jackets per artist.
