He just keeps going viral.
Marc Allante‘s rise to success is something every Artist dreams of. He’s gone viral multiple times, but none were more life-changing than the first in 2013. A friend of Marc’s shared his artwork of a lion, A Portrait of Hong Kong, on Reddit. It was the first moment that really validated his pursuit of becoming an artist. Marc’s mom was battling terminal colon and liver cancer at the time. He acknowledges that going viral during such a difficult time in his life served as this beautiful, and bright moment they were able to share before she passed. Marc has since gone viral multiple times and continues to prove that being a full-time Artist is possible.
