Action Artist William Green

Dismayed by the negative reaction to his art, which involved pouring printer's ink on a canvas and then riding over it with a bicycle, William Green gave up art in 1965. But he took it up again in 1995, at which point "He continued to paint every day and systematically sawed up and destroyed almost all his furniture and house contents, with the resulting debris incorporated in vast black bitumen-covered paintings."
