    I'm a British hotelier. I create Pollock-style art for my premises. It's important to make the canvas BIG. Small Pollock-style paintings are rubbish, but a big canvas always impresses. If necessary, create a diptych or a triptych, that's two three pieces which are mounted immediately side-by-side. It helps when transporting the thing on a car roof rack or up the stairs. I use paint with the same colours as the room and its furniture. Very easy to create a canvas: Make a cheap rectangular frame with scrap wood. Fit a bedsheet to it with drawing pins. Stiffen the canvas by applying PVA glue with a roller or brush. Paint the canvas with the same emulsion you've got on your ceiling. Then dribble and splatter. Pale pastel colours, are less intrusive than dark shades. Above all, and you'll know what I mean when you do it: KEEP IT BIG!

    It helps to see his early works to understand how he got here.

    My granddaughter's cookies were decorated in his style and I'm pretty sure she captured his spirit in her.

    Good luck conservation team – those paints were designed for use on a rigid surface. Pollock was amazing, with an original process…..anyone who replicates this style is a low-level cliched artist

    If Pollock never start this kind of art, you can never imagine painting could be like this before, dear genius out there.

    Make a video on Gerhard Richter and please tell me where he bought his big jars of paint. No one on the internet knows, it seems.

    Jfc so many haters in the comments. Have any of you guys actually gone and seen some of pollock’s pieces? They’re quite moving and emotional. You can feel the motion of his hands and his feet, feel the charged emotions he must have had throwing the paint on the canvas. The sheer size of the piece feels like it’s going to swallow you whole in raw feeling. Saying your child could have done it is an immature way of seeing the piece. Understanding the story behind it can go a long way in appreciating abstract and modern art. Instead of shitting on someone who is undoubtedly one of the most prolific modern artists, consider for a minute why someone would view his art as something majestic and something to be preserved. Then rethink your tired and inane comments of, “my kids could do this” and “this is just paint splatters” and “this art doesn’t mean anything”.

    Saying "oh I could do that" is beside the point; Pollock created his own STYLE and a new GENRE. Saying you could paint like him is like saying you could copy his signature – so what?? Don't be a copier, be an innovator: Try creating your OWN trademark style, that's the great challenge for any artist.

    Pollock was amazing. It's hard to balance what you see here with the real man, and his portrayal by Ed Harris. Artists almost always look like total assholes in their biographies. Picasso becomes a jackass and a clown when portrayed by Hopkins.

    Pollack made lines. He, Rothko, Barnett, Motherwell, and a few others were seminal in creating an acceptance of non-figurative art as " fine art". Kandinsky was pretty much the catalyst in my opinion. The forerunner. Abstract Expressionism ( stupid term ) changed everything but that doesn't mean that we should all splatter or do simple color-field paintings and expect to be nothing more than a cheap copy. It was a jumping off point. No need to go there again. But, now where? That's the question. That's our job as artists. To ask questions. Not answer them. Just saying. ✌

    I’m kind of divided on Jackson Pollock.

    On one hand, I understand the excitement of it. The motion that it preserves. The fact that patterns exist on a deeper level. The celebration of texture and emotion.

    On the other hand, his work proves that visual art, like any other form of “entertainment”, rests purely in the hands of the tastemakers. His vision was his own but his work isn’t uniquely outstanding when you stack it up honestly against many of his peers’. So why is it that we remember his name? Exactly…It’s not an indictment of his work. It’s just how we operate as a species

    It's easy to paint like Pollock. Just spill paint on the floor. Pollock's work and all the bruhaha around it is an insult to truly talented artists. Please bring back objective standards to art.

    If you stare at his painting for like 5 minutes, all of a sudden you see Mother Theresa or the Eiffel Tower or something. Way cool. They have them at the mall.

    I am more of a fan of his earlier work before he started dripping paint on the canvas..his pre-action painting work is amazing. I think very few American painters have influenced world painting the way European painters did. for example if it wasn't for Kandinsky's contribution to the world of painting, we wouldnt be talking about abstract art today.

    It is so weird, but Pollock creates very conceptual patterns in something that seems totally random. While dripping paint on the floor is technically simple, the end result is beyond astounding.

    when Jackson Pollock began a piece, did he envision the end result? was he expressing an idea or sharing a view of something in a new way? or was he showing that he could convince you that a house painters dropsheet could be a thing of beauty?
