In the series Collector’s Choice, Light Cube invites a collector to introduce an artist with a promising career in the making. This December, the enthusiastic collector Paul Declercq gives an introduction to Diederik Boyen, a Belgian visual artist, who partly lives and works in Portugal and whose work he has been following for years.

Boye studied sculpture at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp but came into the public eye with his paintings. "Based upon exceptional technical talent, he paints his portraits and subjects with almost photographic precision. The beauty is breathtaking and thus the confrontation overwhelming."
