Roxx calls his style "Pop Noir" which he takes from his pop
art, musical, artistic, and cinematic influences, which inspire his
work. Roxx started out in Detroit Michigan, where the hard edge and
grittiness seemed to seep into his paintings like gray water. He obtained
a masters degree in Fine Art Painting from the University Massachusetts'
"Boston Fine Art Program". Roxx's images range from classic
cinematic icons to the commercial products of his world. Roxx also takes
inspiration in the emotions, character traits, and stories of those
with which he surrounds himself. The Rock Museum of Munich purchased
his rendition of The Beatles titled Fab Four, which is one of the Museum's
signature pieces. In 2002, The Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland
acquired a similar work. That same year The Centre de Pompidou, Paris
purchased one of his signature Marilyn Monroe paintings, establishing
the young artist as a contemporary master of the Pop Art genre. He also
has an extensive track record in the commercial art world creating CD
covers and having work used in commercials.
