Nice to meet you!
MY NAME IS MARIE POL
Marie has studied academic art from the prestigious Imperial Academy of Arts, St Petersburg, followed by years of experimentation and self-education.
A true citizen of the world who has lived across three continents, Marie internalizes all that vast and diverse cultural experience into a unique painterly style. In her oil paintings, she elegantly fuses classical heritage with contemporary visual codes. Her style oscillates between the representation and abstraction, the sensual and the visceral, the illusionism and the textured physicality of the medium.
Marie Pol is influenced by Classical and Neoclassical sculpture as well as by the work of Rothko, Vélasquez and Bouguereau to name a few.
Before becoming a full-time artist in 2018, Marie has built a successful career with Deloitte. She holds an MA in French Language and Literature and a BSc in Economics. Marie is fluent in English, French, Russian, Spanish and
If not painting, you will probably find her reading, dancing tango or planning the next mountain adventure.
