Jeffrey Vallance ('81, MFA Fine Arts) 's work engages religious and secular aspects of pop culture in peculiar and particular ways. His process involves integrating and researching individuals and institutions ranging from the King of Tonga at the Royal Palace, to the Nixon Museum or Vatican officials. One of these video projects, Blinky, the Friendly Hen, was a collaboration with Otis classmates Bruce Yonemoto, Tom Recchion and Jim Rygiel.

Born in 1955 in Torrance, California, Vallance works in a variety of mediums including painting, drawing, video, performance, and the written word. He is a regular contributor to both the L.A. Weekly and Fortean Times, a newspaper of paranormal experiences. He has had solo exhibitions at museums and galleries around the world, including Daniel Sorano Hall of National Treasure in Dakar, Senegal; Marc Jancou Gallery in Zurich, Switzerland; Emi Fontana Gallery in Milan, Italy; Tasmanian Museum, Australia, the Art Institute of Boston, and the Santa Monica Museum of Art, California. He has also shown his work at The Liberace Museum in Las Vegas and Ron Lee's World of Clowns Museum in Henderson, Nevada. He has appeared on Late Night with David Letterman, and was host of MTV's The Cutting Edge. In 1995, Art Issues Press published his book, The World of Jeffrey Vallance: Collected Writings 1978-1994. He is the recipient of a Guggehheim Fellowship, 2004.
