Everybody wants to make it as an artist when they are alive, but it’s so difficult as there are so many brilliant artists out there and everyone is looking for their own unique style.
The truth is, I paint how I do, I wasn’t influenced, I started painting like this, way before I had ever heard of Jackson Pollock. In fact, when I started painting I knew nothing about art at all. I knew names and certain pictures and had been to galleries and exhibitions, but had never heard of Jackson Pollock.
So is it a coincidence, or am I the reincarnation? Spooky, eh?
I found out about him in 2001 when I had a girlfriend from America who introduced me to the Pollock film. The way he was portrayed by Ed Harris in it had me connecting with the artist and his art straight away. But, I had started painting before I saw that film.
By the way, I have only been to America once and that was to South Dakota and while I was there I visited Wyoming, where Jackson Pollock is from, but I was nowhere near Cody, WY.
In summary, if you want to purchase art similar to Pollock then visit James Presley’s website to get it for a fraction of the price, but be careful, because if he makes it big he might be knocking Pollock’s prices out of the park. Another great thing, he is still living, so you can even ask him to do commissions. 🙂 Oh yeah, you don’t have to bid, you can buy it for the price you see.
