i love when people say 'my kid could paint that' about pollock's work. ya know what? he cant. no one can match his style. his compositions. his color palettes. he makes the chaos work. others have tried. but failed.
i've been trying to perfect my drip techniques for years and its still not right. so watching actual footage of pollock drizzling his paint and watching his work style was pretty amazing.
what was really amazing though was learning how tough his life was. what an ass he was. and how most of the art community at that time either resented his success and/or just flat out hated him cause he was such an alcoholic asshole.
