Coming from a fine art background, street artist Boxi uses greyscale tones in a soft and smokey blend, as if the images were already part of the outdoor walls.

Notes about the artist (from bio):

Born 1974 in Kent, England.

He completed his studies at the London St. Martins school of art with a BA Fine Arts degree in painting in 1996.

Boxi has lived and worked in Berlin, Germany since 2000.

Boxi creates hand cut multi layered life size stencils that he exhibits in galleries and on street walls. It is often their placement within the installation or urban landscape that completes and defines their action, enabling the work to interact with the space. It is within this collaboration that the material boundaries of the work are dissolved, affecting the perception of the image.
