Dennie Boxem (1983) is an artist and first degree teacher of fine art and design. He creates artworks and is specialized in initiating, supervising and realizing team-artworks.
In his artworks Boxem often brings up issues of serious concern. We see Gods being interreligious. We see historical masterpieces prophesying the urge to care for our planet. With a hint of dark humour Boxem depicts issues concerning social and political justice, environmental stewardship and sustainability. It is frustration that inspires Boxem; humanity is lacking to use our technological and biological innovations, which could provide us with endless possibilities for progress, in our full advantage. With the aim for his artworks to promote awareness, provoke dialogue and inspire action, Boxem strives to contribute to better our choices and attitudes toward each other and the natural world.
An important part of his art are his team-artworks. A team-artwork is an artwork made by a great number of people. Boxem is specialized in creating the concepts. He realized multiple paintings, mosaic projects and murals with students of high schools, clients of institutions and visitors of festivals. Not only does a team-artworks directly improve and brighten up any location; it has a important social influence as well; the fact that all individuals are being immortalized together bonds. They bond with the artwork, the location and most importantly with their fellow-participants, because their shared effort is now forever combined in an artwork. This way, Boxems team-artworks are not just making the world a more beautiful place; they contribute to social well-being as well.
