Presenting the best artists from around the globe as they experiment a new form of art called boxART. This is a parcel received back from a boxART contributor from overseas.
In the next few months, we shall present the artists' who have kindly donated their effort to making boxART the latest on-line global phenomenon. Shown are the four panels of tissue-model boxART by an International boxART artist from France.
BNDTC chooses these artists based on one criteria only: Kindness. Shown are the four panels that have been dovetailed and ready to be joined.
The artists represented here are visual artists who extend their work into boxART. They are special because they believe in the development of art to make it accessible and practical. Shown is the clamping process: quality wood adhesive is used to ensure precise and lasting joints. There are no nails and the bond creates a structurally-stable product.
A short profile of the artist is presented together with samples of their major work. A link is provided for you to contact them directly. Shown here are the excess tails that must be trimmed and sanded. Utmost care is taken to keep the original prints from being damaged.
All enquiries regarding boxART International Artists are welcome. Please use the form at the beginning of this website and I shall respond promptly. Shown are some of the last few steps in the process before a base is fixed and final quality inspection of finish is executed.
Born 1958 in Interactives, France, Emilie is drawn to forms and colours that are simple and pure. "I listen to my little girl's heart," she once told me.

Born 1958 in Interactives, France, Emilie is drawn to forms and colours that are simple and pure. "I listen to my little girl's heart," she once told me. Emilie attracted me first to her hand-drawn prints that emphasized white spaces. Her drawings exuded an air of carefree abandonment, a spirit of cadence, and a love for the black ink that appears out of nowhere and suddenly leaves a mark. When I first approached her to draw on my boxes, she was incredulous. She hadn't heard of boxART before so I persuaded her to try. In her first attempt at drawing on art-ready BNDTC wood panels, she succeeded to replicate her spirit of innocence. The three characters in her composition flow from one face of the box to another. There are a lot of stories to these characters and one day I hope to write about them on a sunny afternoon on the way to Church. With this contribution, Emilie becomes the first boxART artist from France and is deservedly France's first boxART Champion. Emilie tells me she would like to appear on this page again with more of her work. Hope to see you again Emilie.
Emilie's work is signed and certified by BNDTC as boxART. It can be found in the Permanent Collection of the world's first children's boxART art gallery.
Prints and paintings shall be posted here so you can contact Emilie directly for direct sales.
From Singapore, comes our new boxART Champion whose work of incredible chromatic depth relieves the most painful of Souls. Gloria's legendary contribution to charity is her trademark. Enjoy!
When Josue Valentim, the boxART Champion from Sao Paolo, Brazil, received my 4 panels of art-ready boxART canvas, he was thrilled to capture the parcel box with three of his student artists. This is a marvelous photo of three children whom, one day, with the guidance and direction of their project director and art teacher, Josue, shall introduce boxART technology into Brazil.
Shown here is project director, Josue Valentim, who has promised to assume a leadership role in the next phase of his project out of Brazil: from Krakow, Poland, he travels to Melbourne, Australia to assist me in developing the concept of boxART through BNDTC (Ben Nile DoveTail Creations, see facebook/benniledesignerboxdotcom for more information on this emerging new art technology.
When Josue returned the drawn boxART panels (BNDTC art-ready wood canvas), one of the panels couldn't fit the model type, TB which stands for "Tissue Box" standard design. It was soon resolved when this panel was used to develop another category for BNDTC designed boxes that were all constructed of dovetail technique. See the following photo.
Using a current model of the tissue box design, we engineered a way to use one of Josue's painted panels to construct a toy. The original designs were developed during the early stage of product development under a program called "FREE boxART" which is a Sunday program for walk-in enthusiasts of art and supporters of boxART. In this particular case, the occasional artist is Hidaya. Her work and others like her are exhibited in the first boxART Children's Art Gallery based in Melton, Victoria.
When one child came to visit the Gallery, she asked whether she could touch this construction. I gave her the construction and asked what did she think about the design. She said it looked like a helicopter thereupon I prompted her with another question whether she might want to give a name to the construction design. She said: "boxcopter" whereupon, I named this exhibit "box-copter".
With the fourth odd panel re-used on another product design (box-copter), the immediate task was to create a design based on three panels only. I came out with a solution: A lamp using three panels joined dovetailed and completed by a fourth panel that became a base.
