Celebrating Jackson Pollock

“Painting is self-discovery. Every good artist paints what he is.”

- Jackson Pollock

Happy birthday Jackson Pollock! The pioneering Abstract Expressionist painter was born on this day in 1912, in Wyoming. 

After moving to New York City in 1930, he spent the next two decades creating Figural, Landscape, and Abstract paintings. 

In 1947, Pollock began to experiment with pouring paint directly from the can onto canvases placed on the floor. Sometimes, he used the assistance of sticks and other non-traditional materials, a technique with which he would become permanently identified.
