Jackson Pollock (1912-1956) was an American artist and a major figure in the American Abstract Expressionist movement.
Pollock dispensed with traditional brush and easel methods of painting, choosing to paint on large canvas placed on the floor.He completed his work by pouring commercial paint onto the canvas with the help of a stick.This revolutionary type of painting involved him pacing vigorously around the huge canvas as he applied the paint.
 Time Magazine dubbed him 'Jack the dripper' when describing his unique style of action painting, in an article titled ' The Wild Ones' in 1956.
