BOXI has just shared images of his newest work with SlamxHype – a gorgeous piece entitled To Die For, continuing to prove that his is one of the most unique and important voices in the emerging contemporary art world.
11 hand-cut life-sized stencils were used to make this piece. Check out this fascinating video of the work in the making.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RN_2REsaPAc[/youtube]
Says BOXI, “it is an attempt to portray the blind purity of love, and a wall of belief that can end it all. The work is a reflection upon the sad fate of two young lovers who were killed because of their love.”

The wall piece and the 240x190cm canvas work below were made for Alpha Delta Gallery and the REMAP KM 2 event which opened on the 16th June and runs parallel to the 2nd Athens Biennial “Heaven”.
