‘Diamonds For Life’ Exhibitor Rudy van Nieuwenhove

Rudy Van Nieuwenhove was born in September of 1962 in Kortrijk, Belgium. He showed his first signs of creative artistry at the age of nine, as a first year Academy student in Harelbeke. Due to high expectations in academia, Rudy’s artistic journey was delayed. Rudy later went to college, but was drawn to back to artistic training.


Through his curriculum, Rudy rapidly consumed all knowledge and experienced as much as possible on the subject of painting, illustration and more, with an undying thirst. At only nineteen, he held his first solo exhibition. During this age, Rudy focused mostly on ink drawings and worked day and night.  As a result, the exhibition was completely sold out and there was a tall list of orders. In the same year, 1981, Rudy worked with ‘New Gallery’ in Kortrijk along with other artists including the widely celebrated Karel Appel. Many works were sold there, and mainly to buyers in the Middle East. Due to this great success, Rudy was able to establish his own company in 1983. He held exhibitions in just about every town around Kortrijk.


Rudy’s artwork evolved as he worked with oil, acrylic, and lacquer, always working away here and there, in a frenzy of wine, caffeine and sugar. Over many years, Rudy organized his exhibitions with the help of his wife Dorine Vanhie. In the last 10 years, he has become increasingly sought out in France, particularly by champagne houses. They commissioned him regularly to portray exclusive frescoed paintings of their homes for bottle labels and hangings.


Thusly, Rudy attracted much attention and was given the opportunity to push himself to his limit. He was invited to exhibit his works and talents in America, The Netherlands, and Taipei. Unlocking possibilities, Rudy came to want to conquer the world, exploring not only the globe, but equally his artistic abilities; he delved into sculpting, surrealism, pop-art, nudes, dripping and more.


Rudy has so far exhibited in Newport / Harelbeke, Zwevegem , Kortrijk , Deerlijk, Leuven, Waregem, Stasegem, Epernay / France, New York, Ford Lauderdale / Florida Daele , Roermond / Netherlands and Antwerp / Belgium.

‘Diamonds for Life’ Exhibitors



Dreams of Diamonds


Welcome to our magnificent book Dreams of Diamonds and the exclusive limited edition set of prints from taken from the book entitled The Illuminant Edition.

As photographic artists and designers for over 20 years we have been involved in all forms of photography and printing.

Over the years we have become known for our work with precious stones, in particular diamonds, and have always aimed to combine our creative fine art ideas into our commercial work. As a result of this towards the end of 2007 we began to explore the idea of producing a wonderful book of highly creative photography exclusively devoted to diamonds.

We are committed to large format images and have been very fortunate on numerous occasions to use the 20×24 inch Polaroid camera, producing exclusive collections of work in both Polaroid Transfer and Emulsion Lift techniques. We also specialized in Platinum Palladium printing with many of our images being printed using this technique.

Considering all the large format work we had created throughout our careers, the idea of producing a fabulous ‘Super Book’ was a natural progression along a path we had already been travelling for many years. The project was completed in summer 2013 and had taken almost 6 years.


Dreams of Diamonds  is one of the most beautiful books’ in the world, it is also the largest book ever produced on diamonds. Published as a limited edition, with each image exquisitely created and featuring many of the most magnificent diamonds of all time, quite simply it stands as a unique work of art. A significant number of copies from the edition have already been distributed to many of the major libraries, museums and diamond institutions throughout the world.

We are delighted to announce that the book will be on display to the public for the first time at the prestigious Diamonds For Life event at the Royal Paleis op de Meir in Antwerp in Feb 2014. Also being premiered for the first time at this event is the exclusive collection of prints taken from Dreams of Diamonds entitled  The Illuminant Edition. This is a strictly limited edition, with only 10 boxed sets of prints being produced.


We feel honoured and privileged to have been able to create such an exceptional and unique project and extend our heartfelt thanks to the many wonderful people involved.
