Nitro Von Borax, Ann Arbor Member Since September 2010 Artist Statement Nitro von Borax is widely recognized as the Natural Heir to Thomas Kinkade's crumbling facade of an empire. The Mighty Arthammer of von Borax strikes the Anvil of Universal Consciousness, forging Iconic Singularities of Metaphor. The comparison is unfair, as Mr. von Borax brings a menu of exotic aperitifs & amuse-bouches to the table that reveal the ultimate paucity of Kinkade's cottagey papscapes, which glow as though lit by chip-grease fires within. Mr. von Borax, known to his fans as "The Painter of Sprinkly Sparkles," draws inspiration from Betty AND Veronica BOTH, stolen Travel Brochures, Martin Denny & Italian Giallo Movies. His Portfolio resonates at a frequency only Bats can hear.
