The History of Paint Pouring!

Wow! Did you know that the painting technique called pouring started way back in the 1930s? And we thought it was all so new, right? Mexican muralist painter, David Alfaro Siqueiros called it his "accidental painting" technique. Here's a video by an art historian and physicist about Siqueiros' technique. If you don't know about Siqueros, check him out online...an interesting political activist and great painter!

Here's the first pour I did back in 2010! which was on the front cover La Chispa Magazine!
