Trevor King is a visual artist based in Queens, New York. Working between sculpture, video, and installation, King undertakes open-ended, immersive projects that ruminate on the endurance of the human spirit in the face of time and mortality. While often referencing specific personal histories from his upbringing in the rust belt, King’s work engages larger contemplations of work, value, and our quest for meaning.
King received a BFA from Slippery Rock University (2011) and an MFA from the Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan (2015). King also studied as an exchange student at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan, Poland (2010). He has been a resident artist at Touchstone Center for Crafts, Ox Bow School of Art, Haystack Mountain School, and Sculpture Space NYC. In 2014, King was awarded an International Institute Fellowship from the University of Michigan to work under British sculptor Antony Gormley. He has exhibited his work nationally and internationally, including Melting Point, a recent group show at the Craft and Folk Art Museum in Los Angeles California. King is currently in the Artist in the Marketplace Fellowship, at the Bronx Museum of the Arts.
