Took a quick break from the wedding album layouts and filling up my portfolio with original.
Drew a quick Ymir instead.

that’s right. this is NOT A PHOTO
“My paintings are about staging an alternate reality, the illusion of verisimilitude on the painted surface, filtered so that it expresses my unique vision…Many of my paintings are about the relationship of light with reflective and transparent surfaces and my journey to understand those qualities and convey my sense of wonder and intrigue over them” - Jason de Graaf.

Graffiti artist David Choe is now being labeled as the new $200 million dollar artist. All for a smart business transaction which occurred back in 2005. At that time, Choe was commissioned by then-Facebook president Sean Parker to paint several murals on the walls inside Facebook’s first offices in Palo Alto, CA. In lieu of a payment of “thousands of dollars,” Choe accepted a comparable amount of shares of the popular social networking site. Now, with the news that Facebook stock will begin trading publicly, the worth of those shares has been valued at approximately $200 million. We are excited to see what Choe will do next, since even before he was a rich man he was pushing boundaries and completely putting himself out there with projects like his book, simply entitled “David Choe”, and a feature documentary called “Dirty Hands – The Art and Crimes of David Choe”. If you want to get to know him a little better check out a free stream of “Dirty Hands” on Upper Playground.
