(description from publishers website)
David Choe — This dynamic monograph captures the frenetic raw energy and gorgeous, intense work of gallery and street artist David Choe. From dropping out of art school to a stint in Japanese prison to representation by the Lazarides Gallery alongside Banksy, Choe’s wild ride through the art world is represented by a major selection of images, and narrated throughout by Choe himself. Graffiti, murals, paintings, sketchbook pages, photographs, toys, t-shirts, collages, artwork created with blood, and more fill the kinetic pages—all annotated by the artist in a voice that matches the funny, frantic, daredevil nature of the work itself.
David Choe’s artwork has been exhibited in galleries around the world, including Jonathan Levine in New York and the Lazarides gallery in London. He lives in Los Angeles.
