Pol Ledent 1952 | Belgium

Pol Ledent, self-taught painter, was born in 1952 in Belgium (Wallonie, french speaking part of Belgium). He came to painting in 1989. He started with watercolor but felt rapidly that oil painting would make him progress more effecient in his search for light. After a few years, because he was disappointed by the fact that he didn't succeed in painting good watercolors, he went to work again. And then, it came as a revelation, he found his personal way of painting watercolors. He is a self-taught painter. Nevertheless he took some drawing lessons in a Belgian academy. After taking part into numerous group exhibitions, some galleries in Belgium proposed to him to exhibit his works.
