Biografie

…born in 1959, his atelier is in Amersfoort, the Netherlands. His inspiration comes from Spanish bulls, the symbol of Spain. The bewildering respect we have for these majestic beasts, which appear to originate from another world where strength and elegance complement each other. This is exactly the characteristic of the bulls that Bosboom manages to capture. He works with several colour layers of Epoxy raisin and acryl. My inspiration comes from the highly iconic photographic images of movie stars. I developed my own iconic portraits by giving them a strong expression, strong colours in a mixed media setting. I use digital art as a basis, then i complete the works with acryl, coffee and multiple layers of coloured and transparant epoxy raisin. All together it results in strong and very decorative portraits.
