The painting “LVIII” is one in a series of abstract expressionism paintings called Fractal expressionism by the artist Chris Barklem, a professional artist based in Barcelona, Spain.

The series took inspiration from the abstract expressionism “drip” painting method of Jackson Pollock (1912 – 1956). Instead of using a drip (as Jackson did), Chris used a blend of professional acrylics, fluid mediums, and innovative application methods to recreate the movement and give profound depth.

It is named “LVIII” as the artist took his inspiration the naming convention of Jackson Pollock (numbers only) with a twist by using the Latin numbering system (“58”).

The highest quality canvas. The artist used professional acrylics, mediums, and varnishes by the manufacturer Liquitex.
