Beautiful Complex Eerie – The Works of David Choe: San Jose

Fight For Tomorrow

The work below from David Choe is a mix between oil paintings, mixed media, and wall murals. I really like the way his images are beautiful and complex, yet eerie. Thanks to Albert for the recommendation! Per Wiki: “David Choe is of Korean descent and was born and raised in Los Angeles. He dropped out of art school, to become a wandering street/graffiti artist. He acknowledges being a thief to support his life-style, and a number of arrests from vandalism to assault. David Choe has traveled to some of the most dangerous places on earth (the Gaza Strip, the Republic of Congo), hitchhiking and freighthopping around the US. and Europe. But among his favorite places is Vietnam. Recently diagnosed with ADD, he attributes both his abilities as an artist and his recent stint in a Tokyo jail to the disability.” 99 Cent Store
