A big rainbow across the sky.

The sun is setting

someone has painted an amazing piece of art

a masterpiece.

the wind is blowing in my face, refreshing and cold.

The sea is glowing from the reflection of the sky.

Waihi.

Every good painter paints what he is...is what famous American artist Jackson Pollock said. He created something different to other artists, even painting in a new way.

People didn’t understand his work at first but I think his abstract paintings look really cool…and one day I would like to create something different too. Just like Jackson Pollock did.

Jackson Pollock was born in Cody, a small city in Wyoming, USA in 1912. He was the youngest of five children, all of them boys. His dad, Le Roy, was born with the surname McCoy…

…but when he was orphaned at the age of three, he took the last name of the neighbours who became his foster parents, Mr and Mrs Pollock. His mother’s name was Stella.

Pollock’s family moved a lot during his childhood, usually because they had difficulties with money problems. His eldest brother Charles left home in 1924 to study art.

He sent home magazines about art, which made Jackson interested in doing art too. Jackson went to stay with his brother in New York, in 1930, and decided to study art.

He believed art was about movement and more about the creating of it than the actual finished piece.

He said, “My painting does not come from the easel.

I prefer to tack the un stretched canvas to the hard wall or the floor. . . On the floor I am more at ease. I feel nearer, more part of the painting, since this way I can walk around it, work from the four sides, and literally be in the painting.

…I continue to get further away from the usual painter’s tools such as easel, palette, brushes, etc. I prefer sticks, trowels, knives, and dripping fluid.”

People had no idea about the way that Jackson Pollock painted but the Chinese had been doing something similar for some time. They used brushes with bristles on the canvas.

He used a stick, to sort of ‘fling’ the paint onto the canvas. It was a very unusual technique.

Flinging, dripping, pouring, and spattering, he would move energetically around the canvas, almost as if in a dance, and he would not stop until he saw what he wanted to see. He always had an idea about what he wanted to paint and how it should look when he was finished.

Like Jackson Pollock, I want to be a famous painter who paints what is inside of me.

At school we have a calligraphy pen. It is so cool. I write with it a lot and there is a book too and it shows you how to use it. I think I'm pretty good at it. But there is a really hard pattern that I'm working on.
