Jackson Pollock - Eduardo Kobra - Eden Gallery

About The Artwork

"Jackson Pollock" is a vibrant homage to the legendary abstract expressionist painter. In this captivating work, Kobra depicts Pollock in his iconic crouching position, deeply engrossed in creating the phrase "I HEART NY" on the floor, utilizing his famous drip-painting technique. The painting captures the essence of Pollock's dynamic, action-packed style, with splatters and swirls of paint that seem to dance across the canvas. Kobra's interpretation is not only a nod to Pollock's groundbreaking artistry but also a celebration of New York City, a place deeply intertwined with the history of modern art. This artwork brilliantly merges Kobra's colorful street art sensibilities with Pollock's abstract expressionism, creating a work that is both a tribute and a contemporary reinterpretation of a pivotal moment in art history.

About The Artist

From São Paulo outskirts to the world: this is Eduardo Kobra. 

Born in 1975 in a poor neighborhood in São Paulo, Kobra began his career at 12 years old and, since then, has become one of the most recognized street artists in the world. With more than 5,000 murals over five continents. He currently holds the record for the largest graffiti mural in the world. First for creating his illustrious mural “Las Etnias” (The Ethnicities) for the 2016 Rio Olympics. Then a year later he beat his previous record with his monumental work at Cacau Show Headquarters, a masterpiece that took 700 hours to complete and more than doubled his 2016 record. Influenced by the pop-art movement and both modern and contemporary artists, the realism in his designs make his flat-surfaced enormously colourful wall paintings appear three-dimensional and alive with life.

With his project Greenpincel (2011), Kobra revealed his strong commitment to the environmental cause. Climate change, water pollution, deforestation, predatory fishing, and mistreatment of animals became strong themes present in his work. In “Stars of Peace”, Kobra depicts individuals who have given hope to the world through their lives, such as Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Malala Yousafzai, and Anne Frank.

Kobra is involved in social causes, such as food collection campaigns and initiatives aimed at bringing art to poor communities, especially children who have no access to basic amenities. In 2021, he started the Kobra Institute, which aims to bring art to vulnerable people in Brazil. During the pandemic, he led an initiative together with the private sector to raise funds to build oxygen plants for COVID-19 patients
