In this study, an analysis is performed for comparing the fractal dimension of Jackson Pollock's art works with that of Korean Infomel art works. In order to test the hypothesis that Jackson Pollock's fractal dimension is different from Korean Informel's, data is collected for the fractal dimensions of 30 Jackson Pollock's and 45 Korean Informel art works. The results show that Korean Informel's fractal dimension is larger than Jackson Pollock's. This might be interpreted that the pattern (in finer scale) of Korean Informel art works is closer to planes, rather than lines or points, compared to that of Jackson Pollock's.
