David Boxley is a Tsimshian master carver and printmaker from Metlakatla, Alaska. He was raised by his grandparents, who taught him the Tsimshian language, as well as many other Tsimshian traditions. In 1979, while working as a teacher, David began devoting considerable time to the study of traditional Tsimshian carving. Through researching cultural material and carvings from museum collections, Boxley learned the traditional carving methods of his grandfathers’ people. In 1986 David decided to devote all of his time to carving and researching Northwest Coast Indian art. David has since become a nationally recognized Indian artist, holding one-man shows all over the world. He is particularly well respected as a totem pole carver, having carved 46 poles in the last 25 years. Boxley’s work is in collections around the word, including those belonging to the King and Queen of Sweden, the Emperor of Japan, the President of West Germany, and the Mayor of Chongging, China.
