A mash-up portrait of Mao Tse Tung and Mona Lisa combines iconic figures of the global visual lexicon. It's up the viewer to decide how to interpret the piece. Simplifying forms to the minimal representation without losing identity is a ideal Zox uses throughout his painting.

ZOX POPUP, an art documentary has been selected to be in the 2121 Los Angeles Motion Picture Festival. The film features the art of Zox and includes most of his works available on Saatchi Art. The Doors’ Jim Morrison lay on his back rapt, never saying a word or blinking, as Zox told the tale of Parisian artists and poets hanging in La Clossier de Lila’s, a 1920 Left Bank cafe. It was there Andre Breton coined “Surrealism” and started a literary movement with his manifesto. He met with Freud, Hemingway, James Joyce and Dali. The ideas they exchanged changed the world. Shortly after, Jim's girlfriend Pamela told Zox he’d have to move out of their Topanga home, where he was living. They were selling and moving to Paris. Zox doesn’t claim he had anything to do with Jim and Pamela’s move, but the coincidence is uncannily epic! Fortunate to be born in Hollywood, Zox felt at home in the world of stars. In college, fashioning a Creativity Major (an interdisciplinary course including art, film, photography and writing) led to connecting with Andy Warhol at SDSU. Under Beat Poet Robert Creeley and studying at SFSU,while painting murals in the Beach Boys’ studio in Santa Monica led to a one-on-one photo session with Bob Dylan. Zox painted Steely Dan’s Royal Scam, tagged the Weltfrieden mural on the Berlin Wall, discussed vegetarianism with premier French philosopher Jacques Derrida, interviewed, photographed, reviewed and showed with conceptual artist John Baldessari.Leon Russell’s Church Studio in Tulsa commissioned Zox to paint a permanent installation of oil portraits of stars who recorded there. Fittingly, Zox designed album covers for legendary artists Leon Russell, J.J. Cale, Tom Petty and Dwight Twilley. At one point, three huge different billboards Zox designed were simultaneously looming over Sunset Strip. Waiting out front of The Troubadour for the Dr. John show, John Lennon and Elton John slipped inside a white stretch limo by the curb. “John Lennon. Quack quack,” Zox impulsively joked. John popped up through the sunroof and retorted, “Quack quack,” then slid back down. Currently putting the final touches on Pop Up, an art documentary film in association with Cre8 films that follows Zox series of art pop up shows staged from the Pacific to the Atlantic and back. In addition to the film there's a tv series and a book in development that revolves around other works.
