Paul Jackson Pollock – known as Jackson Pollock – was born in the United States Wyoming in 1912. He tragically died at the age of 44 in a car accident, but in that kind of short life he became one of the major figure in the abstract expressionism movement.
He developed a technique called “drip“, using the force of his whole body to paint onto the canvases laid out on the studio floor, letting the paint literally flow from the tool onto the artwork.
Although his work has been the subject of important critical debates, for my it’s been a very interesting and inspirational body of work.
The picture above is a sketch for one of my artworks in the Clashing fruits series.
