David Choe, who will be releasing a print on Monday, also worked in Switzerland on an art and wine project called myFINBEC last year. The award winning winery, Cave Fin Bec, brought together eight graffiti artists to paint on large wooden canvases constructed from 84 wine crates. These were then dismantled into their individual parts and filled with six bottles of wine with the artwork adorning each one. Customers who buy these bottles will also own one section of the original painting. Take a look […]

This upcoming Monday (June 17th), David Choe will be releasing a new print with Trapeze Editions at 9 pm (PST). Blanket is a giclee based on a watercolor he painted of a “sleeping beauty wrapped in a reality distortion force field” and will come in two different editions – (18 x 24″ for $448 and run of 48 & 27 x 36″ for $669 and run of 16). Each will be hand embellished so no two will be exactly alike. You can also apparently email Bobby […]
For those who haven’t had a chance to visit David Choe’s “batcave,” here is an in-depth look courtesy of MOCAtv. Along with studio where he does his painting, the complex also acts as a garage, radio station, bachelor pad, and bonus level. Take a look at the video below as Choe gives a guided tour of the space including his unusually sparse bedroom where he sleeps with a modified AR-15. Discuss David Choe here.
With the return of the Rewind article, our first since Basel Week Miami, it only seems appropriate that the featured video is from Art Basel. The footage follows chairman and president of the Calder Foundation, Alexander S.C. Rower, as he explains two prime examples of the famed artist’s work – the white Snow Flurry mobile and an Untitled black piece (never seen before in public). Check the fascinating below as Rower explains the significance and back story of each piece… Other notable videos include: Ann […]
For those who have been following David Choe (featured) on various social media related accounts (like Instagram, Youtube, Facebook), you’ll have heard about his Reddit takeover already. For our readers out there who don’t know what Reddit is (like most of us at AM pre-Choe takeover), it’s a social news website where the users submit content in the form of either a link or a text which other users can then vote it up or down, thereby ranking the post and determining its position on the site’s pages and […]
This Thursday, authorized stockists and The Hundreds’ flagship locations will be releasing a line of collaborative shirts with Marvel featuring the imagery of The Punisher re-imagined by David Choe (featured). For those art fans out there who also have an obsession for comics, here is your chance to combine both loves in one place as Choe has. Read about how the project developed on here for those interested. And those in Los Angeles, you might want to try to attend a lecture Choe is giving at UCLA on the Wednesday. Discuss […]
Last month, we reported on a sweet new mural (jellyfish!) from David Choe’s (featured) from the islands of Hawaii (which subsequently got buffed). It looks like while there, the Facebook gangster also painted some faces and brought it along with him to various locales. Take a look at some of the photos he posted of them to his blog as well as some of his adventures there. Discuss David Choe here.
After news broke earlier this year that David Choe’s (featured) Facebook stock had made him a very rich man, he was last seen getting interviewed by Howard Stern and Barbara Walters. Looks like he’s finally surfaced on the Big Island of Hawaii where he picked up some paint again to work on a wall featuring classic Choe imagery with imaginative and random creatures. It appears we have a octopus headdress wearing mermaid (attached to a fish) being ridden by a bird dress girl, ninja turtle, and the […]
Made has a new video (via Beautiful/Decay) where they interview American artist Kevin Earl Taylor, who was in Berlin a few months ago for his exhibition Deviant Instinct at Circleculture Gallery. In it you can see him discuss his art as well as take a look at some of the work displayed around the showspace. Other videos worth looking at this week include: The Scream by Edvard Munch: A Photo call at Sotheby’s (via Art Market Monitor) The new Victor Reyes – Goorin Brothers XO […]
After going on the Howard Stern show where he perhaps became the first 35 year old man to be adopted, David Choe (now the Prince of All Media) headed over for his next interview with Barbara Walters. Besides talking about and hinting that he was now worth over the speculated $200 million from Facebook riches, Walters also made good on the promise to learn “graffiti” from Choe and received her own tag – BABS-1.
