Paul Jenkins

Nasce a Kansas City nel Missouri, nel 1923. Si forma presso il Kansas City Art Institute dal 1937 al 1942; dal 1948 è a New York all’Art Students League, dove segue i corsi di Yasuo Kuniyoshi e Morris Kantor.
Nel 1951 utilizza per la prima volta la tecnica del dripping. Lo stesso anno viaggia in Europa, Italia e Spagna, trasferendosi a Parigi nel ’53 dove stringe legami con Restany, Tapié, Dubuffet e Tobey. Nel 1954 si tiene la sua prima personale a Parigi presso lo Studio Facchetti. Dalla metà degli anni Cinquanta, l'artista divide il suo tempo tra New York e Parigi.
