It's unlikely that watching paint drip has ever been as transfixing as it is in the video below. Which is likely why the old clip of the making of Holton Rower's "pour paintings" has broken the internet with its morphing, mushy magic. Rower is best known for his psychedelic paintings where he uses up to 50 gallons of paint to make rainbow compositions over wood blocks and canvases. The process to make the rainbow-hued works is calming and mesmerizing at the same time so stop what you're doing and double-click the play button immediately: this is the kind of beautiful mess you want to watch in full screen.
