Caito Paints Tribute to Pollock


The Burnham Gallery curator Dana Downs has announced that Las Vegas based artist Steven Caito will paint a giant 14 by 40 foot mural on the CNET network to honor the late Jackson Pollock.

Las Vegas, NV, July 11, 2005 --(PR.com)-- The Burnham Gallery curator Dana Downs has announced that Las Vegas based artist Steven Caito will honor the late Jackson Pollock by painting a giant 14 by 40 foot mural to be seen live on the CNET television network. Caito has emerged as an artist who is helping to preserve the Abstract Expressionist styles of the New York School, founded in the 40's in Greenwich Village.

"For most of my art career i was unaware of jackson pollock, until people kept bringing it to my attention the similarities of our paintings," says Caito. Caito began to learn more about how Pollock actually painted and realized the techniques he was using  was similar to Pollocks. As Caito became more recognized and well established, institutions like M.I.T. started to study and compare their paintings. To their and his amazement mathmatically, he has so far been the closest to Pollock in his fractal dimensions. "I am not a scholastic artist, i didnt study art, i never had time to frequent galleries, i just painted from my heart  to help me as a therapy with my 20 year fight with drug addiction. Burnham Gallery curator Dana Downs explained that "When i have watched Caito paint he seems to be in a trance like state, painting from some unconcious place. And when he has painted live in front of onlookers in the Las Vegas First Friday Celebration, passers by become captivated  and will stand and watch him for hours. Caito seems unaware of sound and activity around him when he paints. Part of the thrill for me is to watch them watch him."
