J Art Fox

Hailing from Kirkland, Washington, J. Art Fox combines his passion for painting and language by creating works of art painted on texts written in various languages. His work is created with the thought that defining who we are, who we were, and who we will all depends on how we chose to view our situation and the language we use to depict it.Hailing from Kirkland, Washington, J.

“Once you try to express your experience, you’re forced to rely on language to get the job done. The relationship between our life experience, written language, and visual expression is an interesting junction where I do what I do.”

Fox and his partner Yuki currently live by Juanita bay, where he also works as an online Japanese instructor.
