Dirk de Keyzer

Dirk de Keyzer was born in Belgium, in 1958. At the Royal Academy in Eeklo, Dirk de Keyzer developed a preference for working in bronze. The lost-wax method he uses is a labour-intensive and cumbersome method of working in bronze. But these disadvantages outweigh the durable and timeless result. He is a master of this technique, as evidenced by the fact that he can also produce complex sculptures. Modelling is the biggest challenge for him, all with an eye for the finest detail. The special patina is also a characteristic part of his style. His inspiration comes from his travels to Africa and India, but also from the people around him. What his sculptures mainly radiate are positivity and a subtle humour. That this humour can build bridges is shown by the fact that people from different cultures appreciate his images. Because of his unique personal style, he has his very own face in the art world. Today, he is active in various countries all over the world. Exhibitions in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Lebanon and the United States of America.
