Acrylic pouring

Hello, everyone!👋🏼
I'm new and wanted to know when the art of pouring acrylic (with cells) started and who was the great mind behind it? I have been googling and can't semm to find the answer I'm looking for.
I found out about this art a year ago and have loved it since..

Re: Acrylic pouring

I don't know the origin of pouring, but I am absolutely addicted to it.
There is a gal in the Netherlands who has many wonderful YouTube videos on pouring. Her name is AnnMarie Ridderhof.....look for her. She had so many followers, that she started a Facebook group called Acrylic Pouring Basics. This is great for the newby. Everyone is kind and really helpful.
Good luck....

Re: Acrylic pouring

I know that Jackson Pollack became very famous for his pours, but I don't know whether or not he was the first to do this. (Besides the poor fella who spilled his paints . . . oh, wait, that might have been Jackson Pollack!)

I don't know what you mean by cells, however.

A mexican artist David Alfaro Siqueiros was very into pouring in the 1930’s. At that time he called it “accidental painting”. I think he is the one that made it famous.
