Paint like Jackson Pollock

Pollock, Jackson (1912-56). American painter, the commanding figure of the Abstract Expressionist movement.

Pollock's name is also associated with the introduction of the All-over style of painting which avoids any points of emphasis or identifiable parts within the whole canvas and therefore abandons the traditional idea of composition in terms of relations among parts. The design of his painting had no relation to the shape or size of the canvas -- indeed in the finished work the canvas was sometimes docked or trimmed to suit the image. All these characteristics were important for the new American painting which matured in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

link to his bio and works :

I also find this interesting site, it lets you create your own Pollock-ish works online.It's one of them websites that have no use, other than wasting your time. But it's a fun waste of time!

Here is some of MY works! haha.
Now, anyone want to buy it for millions of dollars?
