AM is excited about Berlin-based stencil artist BOXI’s debut United States solo show “Grey Area” opening this Thursday, April 9th at Carmichael Gallery.

Best described as a “figurative Logan Hicks,” the photo-realistic effect of his work is the result of a meticulous and labor intensive process involving six separate layers of hand-cut stencils and an equal variation of grayscale coats of paint. This unique technique combined with his formal training at London’s St. Martins School of Art and Design lends to pieces that are rich, both visually and emotionally.

Get a sneak peek of the pieces in the show and check out all the photos of BOXI hard at work after the jump.
