Jackson Pollock is an interesting figure in art history. I find that people either love or hate his art. Myself, I find his art fun to look at. But I think he made a name for himself because he had the guts to do what he did, which was to go the far opposite extreme of representational art.

He threw away representation, form, and just went full on abstract. Usually, the ones willing to go the extreme are the ones who get noticed. Either way, I think he was a pioneer of experimental art. This is a good video about him.
