I just came to know that the paintings in Vivica Fox’s house at the end of Vol.1 were in fact the works of Rod Grier, brother of Pam Grier. Here’s the article:
Visual artist Rod Grier has enjoyed critical acclaim ever since Quentin Tarantino selected his works for inclusion in the now cult classic Kill Bill. Grier’s work was seen in Vivica Fox’s home in the beginning of the movie.
With Kill Bill Volume 2 slated to hit the theaters Friday, April 16, Grier, brother of acclaimed actress Pam Grier, is anticipating a resurgence of interest in his art. "With the success of the Kill Bill films, a broader audience has now been exposed to my work. It is an artist’s dream to have his paintings become instant collector items, and I owe it all to Tarantino’s vision !"
Anyway, I thought it was interesting and wanted to share it. Didn’t know Pam had a brother, and if any of you ever wondered where that weird blood-splattered painting in Vernita’s house came from, well, here’s the answer.
