Abstract expressionist painter Jackson Pollock was one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, his distinctive art, his volatile personality, and his unusual creative process the subject of much curiosity and debate. Dripped is a wonderful and beautifully animated French short film by director Léo Verrier, paying homage to the great artist. Set in 1950s New York, the film follows Pollock's ecstatic, passionate quest for truth, beauty, and art as he finds the creative voice that catapulted him to the top of the art world—a mid-week treat of the finest kind.
