David Choe

L’artiste que je vous présente aujourd’hui est sûrement l’un des seuls qui sera aussi riche du jour au lendemain cette année. David Choe, un artiste qui se spécialise dans les graffiti, est originaire de Los Angeles.

Maintenant résident de San Jose, il a acquérit de la popularité dans toutes ses années dans le domaine des arts. Ses graffiti sont apparus sur divers murs d’hôtels et compagnies à travers les USA. Son meilleur coup? Avoir peinturé ses oeuvres sur les murs du nouveau siège social de Facebook. Il a choisi d’être payé en action de compagnie au lieu de l’argent. Avec le nouveau IPO de Facebook, il se retrouvera avec plus de 200$ millions en banque. Pas si pire d’être artiste quand même!


The artist I am presenting today is surely one of the few who will hit it big this year. David Choe, a graffit artist, is originally from Los Angeles.

Now residing in San Jose, he gained popularity in the past years. His graffiti have been on hotels’ and corporations’ walls throughout the USA. His best customer? After covered the new Facebook’s headquarter with his graffiti, he chose to be paid in stocks rather than cash. With the upcoming IPO, Choe will have more than $200 millions in his bank account. Not bad for an artist!

I like that painting in the background. I'll have to check out mroe of his work. Thanks for posting the photos and feel free to drop by me too when you have time.

Hi Ellinor,

Thank you for your comment. This artist had a lot of corporate commission work which is nice. The Facebook commission is probably the most lucrative for this artist... due to the fact that he got paid in stock. Smart move! :-) I will check your blog now.
