He would work under the name of "Embtto", but his works are still unknown to the Web and the general public.
Pax Jolie-Pitt, 19, is reportedly learning the art, an unnamed source told
magazine on Jan. 17.
The latter assured that it is not just a hobby, but a serious practice, which should even give rise to an exhibition in a gallery in Tel Aviv, Israel.

The works described as "abstract", would use pieces resulting from a "digital and mixed process".

Paper & Glue
in Los Angeles at the end of 2021 already hinted at his taste for the artistic world.

The one who defines himself as an “artivist” (contraction of “artist” and “activist”) had met the American actress in 2017, during the premiere of the film

The brother of Maddox, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivienne and Knox is not the only one: officiating under a pseudonym is a common practice among the children of celebrities, in particular to avoid being taxed as a “nepo baby”.
Rocco, the son of Guy Ritchie and Madonna, has for example found the pseudonym "Rhed" to exhibit and sell his paintings, the price of which can reach more than 27,000 euros.
The “nepo babies” (contraction of the term “nepotism babies”, “children of nepotism” in French) are criticized for benefiting materially and professionally from the reputation of their parents.
The subject is definitely in tune with the times: the hashtag #nepotismbaby has accumulated more than 260 million views on TikTok, the
New York Times
made an article about it, and the
New York Magazin
even devoted its cover to it - showing that the debate that it induces on social reproduction is very lively.
