JacksonPollock.org: unleash your inner (abstract expressionist) artist


JacksonPollock.org is a free flash toy that simulates the “action painting” style of American abstract expressionist painter Jackson Pollock.

Even if you don’t recognize the name you will likely recognize the gestrual paintings of Jackson Pollock, one of the most important and influential American painters of the last century. You can see an actual example of his work in the image on the right above.

Pollock’s painting style (rumored to have been inspired by seeing his father peeing on a rock) is captured to good effect in this web app, which simulates the drippy paint and turns mouse gestures into, erm .. “art”. Use the mouse button to change colors.
