Jackson Pollock


Jackson Pollock is a major figure in the Abstract expressionist movement. He is well known for his method of drip painting, when he basically just poured or dripped different paint on canvas, using different materials.

He was creating quite large and energetic abstract works. He also had his own signature drips.

This technique is actually quite random. Because when making it you can't predict the actual outcome, as you can not be sure what marks you will get.

This method became well known nowadays, as it is not difficult, but it is still the best way to show your emotions on paper. Because when looking at these artworks, I can actually feel the emotion artist was feeling at the time when he was making them. I think these are very strong pieces of work.
