David Choe (born April 21, 1976, Los Angeles, California) is an American painter, muralist, graffiti artist and graphic novelist of Korean descent. He achieved art world success with his "dirty style" figure paintings—raw, frenetic works which combine themes of desire, degradation, and exaltation. Outside of galleries, he is closely identified with the bucktoothed whale he has been spray-painting on the streets since he was in his teens.
RT: @zooksalmighty This guy hangs out with everyone from Anderson Paak to David Choe and he still went out of his way to shake my hand. You'd never guess he's famous. Google him. . In frame: @dumfoundead . #projectblowedanniversary #portraitkillers #PJBAllStars
