Jackson Pollock Splashed Paint and Wasn't Sorry

$13.50per item
$18per item25% Off


A clever, charmingly quirky portrayal of painter Jackson Pollock – and the first in a series of picture-book biographies of contemporary artists Jackson Pollock was unlike any other painter. Instead of sitting in front of an easel with brushes, he poured paint over canvases rolled-out across the floor, moving, splashing, and making the vivid liquid run with energy and rhythm. Pollock’s story is told here with wit and eccentricity, perfectly paired with black-line illustrations – and splatters galore. Fausto Gilberti brings movement, life, and whimsy to the true life story of one of the most important contemporary artists of our time. Fausto Gilberti is a painter and illustrator based in Brescia, Italy. He studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan, and has been part of more than a hundred solo and group exhibitions, both in Italy and abroad. He wrote this artist biography book to make contemporary art approachable and enjoyable for his two children.
