Marion Boehm was born in 1964 in Duisburg, Germany. She lives and works in Frankfurt, Germany and Johannesburg, South Africa.

 

Marion Boehm studied Design with a major focus on design and graphic design at FH Darmstadt, Germany. She moved to South Africa in 2010. Since relocating, she has spent a great deal of time engaging with members of South African society.

 

In Johannesburg she began her artistic career in creating her unique magnificent collages. Her work focuses on social, economic, and cultural matters on the African continent. In strong contrast to the Western world’s obsession with honed physical appearances, Boehm has often been struck by a silent and unpretentious beauty found in some African women. 

 

Boehm’s work is an impressive combination of artistic integrity, conceptual vision, and aesthetic beauty.

 

Marion Boehm ́s work has been collected internationally and was included in exhibitions and art fairs in South Africa, Germany, France, United Kingdom and Lithuania.
