Seek One began his artistic journey at age 15, though he had always been interested in the creative side of life. Drawing graffiti in his hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he soon assumed the name 鈥楽eek One.鈥 Along with his street art, he also dabbled in photography. Being a self-made artist, Seek One feels that being able to experiment and have free reign with his creative endeavors helped guide his success and build a unique style of art.

Seek One gains his inspiration from both visual and musical artists, some favorites include Shepard Fairy, Ansel Adams and Alec Monopoly. 鈥淎nyone who was able to perfect their craft and take it to the highest level is inspiring to me,鈥 he expresses. Other sources of inspiration stem from his childhood experiences and pop culture. From this, Seek One hopes to blur the lines between art and urbanism. Traveling the world, especially Europe, is another muse for him. His destinations offer him fresh, creative energy that he uses to propel his art.

Many have taken note of Seek One鈥檚 talent, commissioning him or featuring his artwork in various galleries around the world. Notable collectors of Seek One鈥檚 artwork include public figures, including but not limited to Jonathon Cheban, an iconic food influencer, Quavo, an American rapper, Ben Simmons, a basketball player for the Brooklyn Nets, Kaley Cuoco, an American actress and Tony Robbins, a self-help guru.
