Graphic Design Photography
Named after the ancient Macedonian king Alexander The Great, Phillip Alexander Loken (also known as King Phill), was born in Texas, but raised in North Carolina; King Phill is a southern artist by all means. At the age of 5, Phill began playing the drums, beginning his journey into self-expression and artistic creativity. After music, he found fashion. Around the age of 13, he created a clothing brand with his high school friend. That brand released three separate pieces and each piece sold out within a week; that’s when King Phill knew he was onto something. From 2011-2015, Phill attended UNCG where his creativity reached new heights. Phill started a streetwear fashion blog called Cool&Well-Dressed during his sophomore year where he interviewed different key figures and up-and-comers in the streetwear industry; he’s worked with brands as big as Diamond Supply Co, Billionaire Boys Club, Karmaloop and independent brands like FTP, Rori and H33M Inc. During his junior year at UNCG, he showcased his photography in a joint exhibition with X The Artist entitled “The EP: Soundtrack To Creativity”. Now King Phill has evolved into a creative jack of all trades of sorts. He’s a freelance, published photographer shooting for two independent publications, he’s a part of Greensboro, NC’s clothing brand Avant Garde and is currently designing for the release of his own clothing brand. He also manages and handles creative direction for a couple independent music artists and brands. King Phill promises that this is only the beginning of what he has to contribute to culture.
