Daisy Boman was born in Belgium in 1948 and upon coming of age, studied Interior Design and Photography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp. Upon completing her degree she began to experiment with ceramics and shortly thereafter moved to Johannesburg, where she was nominated for the National Ceramic Exhibition multiple times. Boman currently lives in Geel, Antwerp.
Continuing to push her skills further and further, Boman exhibited in Belgium, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands. She's also distributed her works widely all over the world with her pieces being a part of a selection of private and public collections within the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Canada, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand and in the United States. Boman has additionally made TV appearances on Belgian television and has had her pieces featured in a variety of magazines including 'Art of England' and 'Fine Art Collector'. Finally, her 2010 piece, "We Will Find A Way" was selected for the luxury liner 'Nieu Amsterdam' to display the country's sculptural style.
Boman's style is distinctively inspired by the oppression she witnessed whilst living in Johannesburg and displays these aspects within her sculptural work, her famous 'Bo-Men' characters shown in the works take on a remarkably lifelike form, despite lacking, in many cases, fully proportioned limbs or features.
