David Choe Print

An article on New York Times, From Founders to Decorators, Facebook Riches, investigated who was set to benefit from Facebook’s IPO. This article caught my attention because David Choe, a graffiti artist, was about to make millions of dollars. I have always followed Choe’s work so I was elated when my brother-in-law gave me one of his prints for Christmas in a heavy black portfolio with a gold skull and ‘Choe’ on the cover. Now that Choe is getting so much publicity for his stock in Facebook, I expect the value of the print to rise.

Choe accept stock in Facebook in 2005 as payment for murals in did in Facebook’s HQ. He chose the stock instead of $60k – he said he “likes to gamble”, even when he (and many others) thought Facebook was a joke.

This is not the print I have but it’s one I really like, titled “Tokyo Girl”.
