About Gerard Boersma

 
 
  • Biography

    I create colorful and highly detailed works of art to express my love for the modern human as well as my concerns about contemporary society. 

    My hyperreal paintings are based on photographs I took during long walks through my hometown and major cities. Paintings show people on the streets, in stores, public transport and museums or zoom in on popular products. 

    To me these glimpses of everyday live are important as they say a whole lot about todays society. They show the way people act, communicate or are influenced by modern developments in various ways. 

    I observe it, enlarge it and paint it. That way I freeze time and our fast and busy lives are forever captured in a moment. Finally ready to be observed quietly. 

    I'm a professional and international recognized artist for over 17 years well known for my own realistic style of painting. My art is in museums, galleries and private collections worldwide (North America, Europe, Asia, Australia).

    Paintings were shown alongside the biggest names in art history at leading art fairs in Europe and United States.

    I've studied painting and fine art at the School of Arts Minerva in the Netherlands. I currently live and work in Leeuwarden, The Netherlands.
