Artistique Life of Mark Pol Amsterdam, May 25, 2017.
I was born in The Hague. Now I live in Amsterdam.
I had no artistic influence. My parents were poor and could not pay a formal academic study in the Arts. At that time I knew nothing about art. I have just my own fantasy. I am a dreamer who never wants to wake up, but I did when I grew up.
I learned on the Free Academy of Art during evening studies to work with Oil on canvas. Drawing with charcoal on paper. Why? Because I was formally trained in those techniques at that time. I speak about half way the Sixties.
I received formal training on the Free Academy of Art in the evening in The Hague.
