-Sience behind Flow Painting-

Did you know that there is a science behind the mysterious style of art that is Fluid Painting? Just a happy accident ? Then I stumbled an article that explained the secrets behind this magical form of art. Although Paint Pouring and Fluid Painting has exploded in popularity quite recently, the technique itself has been around since the 1930’s. A Mexican artist (and political activist) by the name of David Alfaro Siqueiros stumbled across this technique in his studio which he described as “accidental painting”. Siqueiros immediately fell in love with the aesthetics, a happy marriage between science and art, complexity and beauty, achieved with very little effort. His fascination with this phenomenon led him to the science of Fluid Dynamics. This “accidental painting” technique went on the inform the work of some of the great artists such as Jackson Pollock. Artist: David Alfaro Siqueiros (December 29, 1896 – January 6, 1974)
