The '@thexavius: Portrait of an Instagram Artist' project examines the hilarity behind a fictional pretentious Instagram King. Taking the actions and words of the average pretentious Instagram user to an entirely new (and wonderful) level, the @thexavius: Portrait of an Instagram Artist video follows the fictional Instagram user @thexavius and his pursuit of the perfect Instagram photos.

Since being bought by Facebook last spring for a grand total of $1 billion, the massively popular social media platform has gained mainstream recognition and been the source of many spoofs and jokes.

The @thexavius project video centers around the pretentious world of "cutting a knife through society" with the photos taken by the fictional Instagram king. The video examines a hilarious element of today's hipster society and photography realm.
