Philadelphia artist, Victor King has been gaining a lot of attention on social media. Every day he continues to work hard so that he can put his art out to the world and touch as many people as possible. His work really stands out, and because of that he is able to capture the eyes of many. 

Once again, Victor King is from Philadelphia. Because his mother was an artist, he has been around art since he was very young. While growing up it became normal in the house for Victor to express himself with a drawing pencil. Art gave him an outlet and allowed him to develop an endless imagination.

It’s obvious that Victor has a lot of talent. The ironic part is that people are just now seeing what he can do. I know this because he told me that he just started putting his work out to the public a couple of years ago. Before that, art was just something he did as a hobby. It was never something that he had taken very seriously.

It wasn't too long ago when he began posting on instagram. All he did was post his work and from there his following began to grow. The few followers that he had in the beginning were tagging the Instagram accounts of local galleries, events, and other well­ known Philadelphia artists to his page which kept creating more and more awareness. Over time he had gained a loyal following of people from all over the world that truly love and appreciate his work.

Victor is not just an artist, he's also business minded. Victor's goal is to create a brand and market himself. He stresses the importance of having goals. His overall goal is to create a multimedia brand.

Not much of a talker, he chooses to let his work speak. I did asked Victor what advice would he give to others, “Don't take anything for granted” he said. Victor believes that he is blessed to be in the position that he is in. I’m glad I got the opportunity to finally meet the man behind the work.
