    “Pol’s work consists of raw, engaging pieces that incorporate layered paint,stencils, text and silk-screening that draw from and concurrently commenton predominant themes in pop culture and advertising. The viewer isimmediately engrossed by Pol’s use of brilliant primary colors that seemto have been boldly applied to the canvas. Despite the frenetic nature ofthe pieces, the earthy, graffiti-like quality of the work speaks to a universalmythology that is accessible to all.”
