¶ Van Mierop was born in the Dutch East Indies, on the grounds of the Majong sugar factory, about 11 kilometers from the city of Kudus in Java. He was educated at the mechanical engineering department of the MTS, where he also took lessons in line and hand drawing. He then became a train driver and eventually chief engineer with the State Railways on Java. He married Eleonora Leontina Crama (1910-2004) in 1928, with whom he had three children.
As an artist, Van Mierop was self-taught. From the early 1930s onwards, he made drawings and caricatures for the "Java Express", the weekly "D'Orient" , the "Algemeen Indisch Dagblad" and the "Soerabajaasch Handelsblad", among others. At the end of the 1930s, he transferred to another department of the State Railways where he was appointed technical director of the advertising industry in July 1938 and was appointed head of the regulations office, warehouse of printing and printing in November of the same year. In 1939, he became Committee Chief of Advertising.
He has designed numerous posters, billboards, advertisements and even large wall paintings.
From 1942 to 1945 during the Japanese occupation Van Mierop was interned in a Japanese concentration camp. During this period he continued to draw with materials smuggled in by his wife Noor.
In 1950 the family moved to the Netherlands and settled in Oosterbeek. Van Mierop opened his own advertising agency, the "Reclame Studio van Mierop". From the start he was a member of the artists' associations "Rhijn-Ouwe" and "Punt 62" in Oosterbeek, with which he also exhibited.
Politionele Acties (Dutch for "police actions") refers to two major military offensives undertaken by the Netherlands on Java and Sumatra against the Republic of Indonesia during its struggle for independence in the Indonesian National Revolution.
In Indonesia they are known collectively as Agresi Militer Belanda ('Dutch Military Aggressions'), although the term Aksi Polisionil is also known.
