Box continues to push the boundaries of sculptural techniques and processes.



Meet The Artist

Kevin Box is recognized for his ability to capture the delicate nature of paper in museum-quality sculpture. Since the beginning of this century, he has grown to become the featured artist in many of America's top, fine art galleries and fairs. Box’s work has received numerous awards and is held in prominent collections worldwide. In 2004, he was the youngest member ever elected to the National Sculptors' Guild and was recognized by Southwest Art Magazine as one of the “Top 21 Artists Under 31.” He has placed more than 20 works of art in public spaces and is represented by fine art galleries across North America.

In creating his work, Box successfully collaborates with some of the world’s most renowned origami artists, foundries, fabricators, and engineers. In 2015, his studio was recognized with the Award of Excellence by the Structural Engineering Association of California for "Hero's Horse," a 25-foot-tall, fabricated steel Pegasus that was also featured on the cover of Art Business News. Box works closely with his wife, Jennifer, at their home and studio in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Together, they have created "Origami in the Garden," a monumental sculpture exhibition that has been traveling to botanical gardens throughout North America since 2013, including exhibitions at the Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus, Ohio and at both the Naples Botanical Garden and Artis-Naples in Florida.

Box grew up in Bartlesville, Oklahoma studying graphic arts, and as a high school freshman began spending his summers apprenticing at his uncle’s design firm in Atlanta, Georgia. After attending a summer course at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, Box was awarded a four-year scholarship from the School of Visual Arts in New York City to study graphic design. Required art history courses captured his imagination and eventually drew him to Greece where he saw, first hand, some of the greatest antiquities of the world. The experience was life-changing. He switched his major from graphic design to fine art, and focused his attention on sculpture and art in public places. After graduating, he labored under a self-imposed apprenticeship in Austin, Texas to master the art of lost wax casting and fine art publishing. The artists he worked for mentored him through his exploration of style, as well as the business of art. Working his way up to production manager at one of the largest fine art foundries in Texas, Box pioneered techniques that continue to inform his work today.

Along with his unique style of storytelling, Box continues to push the boundaries of sculptural techniques and processes. This approach, combined with his fearless vision for collaboration, will define Box’s contribution to the art of the 21st century.
