About this Art
""Blackened" is inspired by the Metallica song of the same name. It represents man's rape of our beautiful planet. It was created under extreme physical and mental stress. I was directing and episode of Family Guy, writing an episode of Family Guy, participating and eventually winning an episode of ABC's "Wipeout", painting and trying to be a good dad. It was originally painted for a Metallica tribute show but because of some miscommunication ended up in the "Dark Pop 4" exhibition at the LAST RITES Gallery, New York." - Joe Vaux
This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Joe Vaux and 1xRUN
"After receiving a B.F.A. in illustration at Syracuse University in 1994, I moved to California and began my professional career in the animation industry. I refer to these years as graduate school, continuing to learn from some of the animation world’s top artistic talent. I am currently a Director on FOX’s “Family Guy”.
Although my influences and abilities have grown, my imagery seems to grow out of an adolescent’s sensibility. Strange environments and absurd characters are the players in a demented adaptation of my life story. I hope that within the madness the viewer will find the comedy that is our existence." - Joe Vaux
