Mark Pol, born 17th October 1941 in The
Hague has found an early passion for painting. His interest in drawing and
painting started in primary school. And later on he went to the Photo Academy
followed by the Free Academy led by George Lampe.
The work of Mark
Pol, also shown on his website (www.markpol.nl),
is in essence inspired by daily human life, without losing its vulnerability
and the animal unpredictability. Despite the timeframe the painting or drawing
might seem to be in, humanity is key in his work.
In the early stage of a painting, Mark Pol draws his thoughts and dreams with a pencil and then
continues his vision with a basis of oil - or acryl paint on canvas. The
expression of Mark Pol are often too
much for the two dimensional canvas and the result is a three dimensional
world, shown in different materials.
