Gerard Boersma
Artist's Statement
G erard Boersma is one of the
leading young Dutch artists and
well known in his native country
for his highly detailed
hyper-realist works of
individuals caught in moments.

His paintings are photorealist
portraits of souls alone in city
landscapes perused with the
precision of a brutally honest

Boersma studied painting and
fine art at the School of Arts
Minerva in the Netherlands,
specializing in meticulous form
drawing and realistic painting.
Boersma is a master draftsman
whose paintings peer into the
most mundane instances of
human interaction for windows
into the mysteries of the soul.
