Action painting - or, more broadly speaking, abstract expressionism - is a style of painting which artist Ben Mosley has used to powerful effect to capture the drama of everyday life and the environment around him. Like his predecessors in this genre, Willem and Elaine de Kooning, Franz Kline and Lee Krasner, Mosley values spontaneity and creates his images by stroking paint directly on to each canvas in a gestural, dynamic fashion.
