Albert Irvin, artist - obituary

Albert Irvin, the painter, who has died aged 92, started out in the 1950s as a figurative artist of the kitchen sink school, but after discovering Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko at a famous Tate exhibition in 1956 he reinvented himself as an exponent of a dazzlingly vigorous abstract expressionism, becoming one of Britain’s most respected abstract artists.

theres something about this artists abstract work that i absolutely love

Kandinsky - he could see music. Different notes, riffs and instruments had their own color and shape. When I was in first grade our teacher gave us some paper and colored pencils and made us listen to jazz to see if we could see music like Kandinsky. I couldn't but now every time I see Kandinsky's art, I think of jazz - he was a big fan.
