Mark Pol – An Abstract Adventurer
Mark Pol is an abstract artist from Amsterdam who enjoys exploring the imagination through his work. Similar to the great explorer Marco Polo, he chose the name because he is always searching for something new in his art. His education came from the Free Academy of Art and Photo Academy in The Haque. Outside of art, he has an interest in futuristic topics such as artificial intelligence and robotics.
Pol’s style could best be described as a kind of abstract fantasy. He pulls most of his inspiration from his own dreams. His use of different materials adds richness and the varied color palette adds uniqueness. Working with pencil, or acrylic on canvas, he manages to create a fantasy world to share with the audience. The subjects he uses often resemble the human form, but are presented in a way that provokes conversation.
