DAVID CHOE & DVS1

David Choe is from Los Angeles with Korean decent, and considered one of the most creative young talents of his generation. His works have been exhibited in galleries internationally, and include disciplines such as photography, writing, illustration and graphic design  aswell as street art and graffiti.  Choe has been commissioned for several high-profiled clients, including Jay-Z, Linkin Park, then senator Barack Obama, and the Facebook office. His influences are comic books, gothic art, impressionism and the surreal, to mention just a few.  His characteristic figure, the bucktoothed whale has been with him since he was a teenager.

Mixing techniques, Choe’s style is one of a kind. The process may seem dirty and chaotic, but beauty emerges from the mess. His style is raw and grimy, impulsive and energetic. Desire and degradation are frequent themes in his works. Refinement and vulgarity, brutally true and unreal at the same time – it’s all possible in Choe`s art. David Choe himself might consider graffiti as something separated from his own work, but everything he does is deeply rooted in graffiti culture. For Choe graffiti is “destructive, anarchist, political, spiritual, and mostly just fun.” . The freedom of speech appears in graffiti as words and pictures. Choe says he makes art because he has no other choice. He can’t imagine life without art, it saved him from death or becoming a criminal. Mostly, the art is in the way David Choe lives his life, how he experiences every day and ultimately, how he shares it with us.

As in 2009, David Choe will once again be joined by the mysterious DVS1.
