    First off, Jackson Pollock as far as i'm concerned turned something into nothing. If you don't know who he is he's the guy that basically (no pun intended) splattered, dripped, etc. paint on various surfaces to create images what he considered showed different moods and feelings.(something to that effect). Anyhow, I don't really think that today he directly influenced graffiti simple or wildstyle. From an art-fag like myself's point of view i guess his motivations are the same as many artists are and graffiti artists alike. He did what he felt to convey what he felt which i feel alot of artists lack nowadays, true creativity. I always tell kids not to draw the fruit on the table like it is, that might be coo to impress everyone sometimes, but to draw or paint em how they see em. JP obviously saw things very creativily and portrayed them as such.
    So in conclusion i guess we can apply his motivations and ideals to graf somewhat but i dont feel he directly influenced graffiti style as such.

    K i'll fuckin stop there

    i understand his work and appreciate it alot but i think that he was way-overrated in the art world....then again he was basically conquering new ground when it came to painting techniques. noone had ever seen splatter or drippings in a gallery type setting so i can see why he was hyped up so much....his shit was ground breaking in the early 50's...but i think he was over-hyped just cause his shit was different
