Marcus King was born in 1891 in Taranaki and at the age of 15 won a junior cadetship in the architectural division of the Public Works Department in Wellington.He travelled to the United States of America in 1915 and enlisted in the army and after returning from World War II, worked in advertising as a commercial artist. During this time, he also taught art at the Wellington Technical Institute.
Marcus King is best recognised for the considerable body of commercial and fine art work that he created for the New Zealand Tourism Department.
