    About The Work

    Rollins and K.O.S. begin with important literary and musical classics as the inspiration for their artwork, which is typically produced directly on the pages of books, cut out and laid in a grid on canvas. This is their signature style, which was developed early on in their collaboration. They have used numerous text works as source materials including literary classics by William Shakespeare, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Franz Kafka, Mark Twain and F. Scott Fitzgerald, as well as musical compositions by Felix Mendelssohn, Richard Strauss and Duke Ellington.
