Vic The Bitter is no stranger to art, music or international collaboration. Being raised by a musical family, learning to play guitar at the age of 6; and drawing since he could hold a pencil. But Hip-Hop and all its elements really made its mark in his early teens which hasn't faded.
Deranged Thoughts LP (January 9th, 2013), Vic's first release saw local and international features from the likes of King Kashmere (Strange U), Lee Scott, Jakprogresso, King Grubb, NoEmotion, Sniff, Tomahawk, Alexx Baldwin, Nathan J, Oath, Eddy Extract, Leonidas, Bids86 (Pantheon Vanguard) & DJ U-Wish. Artwork by Joshua Jbiz.
Vic then went on to perform at some of the more well recognised venues & bars around Melbourne, as well as Perth.
Amongst copious amounts of commission artwork on canvas, walls and skateboard decks, Vic has provided artwork for album covers and promotional art for local & international artists.
Co-founder of Lazy Clothing with partner JBiz (USA) in 2004 was an initiative for not only their own art, but also to provide exposure and limelight to other less known, underrated artists from around the globe. Lazy Clothing is now back in effect also!
