In September 2018 Boxem made this Team-Artwork with five hundred students of Deltion Sprintlyceum Zwolle commitioned by Stadkamer Zwolle. He remade his own ‘From Vitruvian Man To Bullit Can’ (2017) in the style of hyperrealist Chuck Close. Not only energy cans have a toxic effect on our youth and environment; the print on the Bullit Energy can is the Vitruvian man of Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). The giant contradiction of one of the most genius men in history ending up on one of the most noxious products of our time, is a subject that made a lot of young students thinks.
