This week I am looking at the famous abstract artist - Jackson Bollerk.There she is, over there.
Jackson was the little heard of 6th member of the famous group of singists and dancerers - The Jackson 5
He was well pants at singing and he danced like your dad when he's drunk.
Jackson got bored of polishing Michael's, Toto's, Geranium's, Janet's and the other one's shiny shoes.
He knew he could do something to make a name for 'imself.
He decided to paint.
Jackson was not yer traditional artist by any means. He din't use brushes - he used his massive afro.
He would pour paint over his head and then breakdance, (like your dad), all over the massive canvases. He come up with all sorts of funky stuff. Some of it looked like a cat wot done a sick. Some of it looked like rubbish. Some of it was alright if you like that sort of thing. Sadly Jackson soon became bald with all the wear and tear on his impressive 'fro. He needed to come up with a solution - and fast.
Jackson couldn't think of nuffink. He soon became penniless and depressed.
Then he went a bit mental too. He started to eat the remains of his paint. Nobody ever knew if it was 'cause he was well peckish or if it was just that he was off his chump. Anyway...eating paint leads to his final epic and glorious creation!
Jackson got a severe case of bad guts - and just couldn't make it to the lavvy on time.
His violently exploding botty mess hit his one, huge, remaining canvas - and the new style of painting was born. More fart than art.
Clever fella really. He got well famous and ended up being the most successful of all the Jacksons.
Personally I think his paintings are a bit sh!#
Next week...some other stuff.
