Jackson Pollock (January 28, 1912 – August 11, 1956) was an American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement, who revolutionized the way we approach art. He freed the artist from representational art,which his contemporaries were still restricted by through form, and shape.
Pollock was a firm believer that the source of all art was from the subconscious mind, and the artist, through his newly introduced style of drip painting and free brush strokes, for the first time was directly able to express what was inside, beyond what he was conscious of or not.
