Pol Pierart was born in 1955 in Liège. He likes to play with words. Julis Bawin in the numéro 34 de l’art même in 2007 said of him: " If there’s an artist who’ll never change the path he was determined to follow, without giving into the trend, it’s Pol Pierart. Apart and almost in secret, he keeps his work constant and coherent. Nonetheless, his work changes the way we see things, our eyes can’t look the other way. Indeed, it puts an end to the triumph of display. Throughout his exhibitions, we are still captivated by the small discoveries of a man who, even though he’s not found of speaking in public, plays cleverly with words using irony and insinuations. "
