King Pig believes the theme of “Atlanta” is a concept that both locals and tourists can wrap their arms around and enjoy. The artist finds one of the themes of Altanta and the Atlanta BeltLine to be that of historic eating establishments, thus inspiring his work Cheeseburgers and Unicycles.
King Pig, the artist, is a native of the Northern Midwest. Spending his freshman and sophomore years of undergraduate at the University of Maryland, Munich, Germany, taught Daniel an appreciation of art and inspired the will to create it. Upon returning to the United States, he attended the University of North Dakota and graduated with a B.A. in Communication. He has practiced the arts by working in advertising and print in Atlanta, Georgia. Dan is currently president and creative director of Mercenary Graphics.
