About the Artist:
Ryan Pola is an artist from Melbourne Australia who has always had an interest in creative methods of representing ideas and interpretations of the world around him. This is a passion he has carried since a young child. Studying a Bachelor of Visual Art and a Bachelor of Education he now works as a graphite artist and an educator. Being able to connect with young artists and share creative passion is just as important as being able to create his own work.
Drawing eventually became a love as well as a passion. For some time now Pola has been refining his drawing abilities to be able to translate ideas and feelings from his mind to the paper. Recently Pola was proud to win the Southern Buoy Portrait Prize (2022) & the Rainbow Award, Biblio Art Prize (2022).
