Faith Ringold, the only artist in the collection to be currently alive, herself worked closely with the Vans and MoMA team for her part of the collaboration. The designs were reworked to showcase two of her feminist poster pieces, Woman Free Yourself and Freedom Woman Now .
Taking over the Sk8-Hi model is Lyubov Popova’s sharp take on a reconstruction of her Untitled work from 1917. Popova’s work takes on a Cubist and Constructivist journey.
Jackson Pollock’s One: Number 31 from 1950 takes over the Authentic. An ode to the abstract expressionism, his individualism and way of creating.
In celebration of Edvard Munch, the prolific Norvegian expressionist painter. His most influential piece of work is featured above, The Scream. Quickly becoming a cult icon, this piece reflects his views on the human condition.
In celebration of Kadinsky, the renown pioneer of abstract art. Kadinsky found emotion and life within color and shapes. Taking inspiration from, ‘Orange 1923’, this Vans’ Classic Slip-On celebrates this investigation into abstract forms and signs.
