Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt, the adopted Vietnamese son of Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, has become an artist using a pseudonym to avoid attention from the media.

Pax, 19, has gotten involved in art game under the pseudonym "Embtto." His works use a "digital and mixed media process" and have been described as "abstract," according to entertainment site Page Six.

This is not just a hobby for Pax, who is really passionate about art and who is now preparing for a show at a gallery in Tel Aviv.

The up-and-coming artist has gotten involved in the creative field in recent years. He has worked on several of his mother’s films, including "Without Blood" and "First They Killed My Father."

Pax was born in 2003. His biological mother abandoned him shortly after he was born and his flight put him into an orphanage in Ho Chi Minh City. People gave him the Vietnamese name Pham Quang Sang. He lived in the orphanage until he was three and met Jolie during her visit to Vietnam.

He was adopted by Jolie and her new husband Pitt in 2007. The former couple also share Maddox, 21, Zahara, 18, Shiloh, 16 and twins Knox and Vienne, 14. Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in 2016 and they have been involved in a long and bitter custody battle.
