is a Dutch painter. He lives and works in Amsterdam. Van den Boog studied at famous Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, Netherlands. His works are extremely well executed and nostalgic. Van den Boog’s method of using etching fluids to oxidize the surface of the unfinished black steel creates a deep and weighty aesthetic. Van den Boog reveals his thematic intention through controlling the corrosion of the steel, therefore manifesting the metaphor of the figs’ demise through his materials. He lays an under-painting in acrylic for quick-drying and a sketchy finish, and then applies a top layer of oil paint. This technique creates nuances and details in the portraits and intensifies the color.
