Thought some of you would be interested in this - if you can't make the David Choe book signing at Giant Robot (or missed past opportunities), buy your book through their site and they'll have David custom sign it for you.
The new abstract pieces at known are something to behold
You know what, I have to concur. Really quite impressive.
And I was, in fact, incorrect in stating it was a commission. It was from the last LAZ show, priced at 85k. Figured it was a commission based on the large murals someone at the company had to have arranged for directly with Choe.
Wish I could play around with Zuckerberg's bank account a bit on some art. Not sure what the hell he's buying Choe pieces for with as close to a never ending supply of money as anyone in the new money generation could have. But then again, I read something recently about him living a deliberately modest lifestyle (have you seen his house? not even close to what someone with a net worth of close to 15 billion), reportedly due to his bizarre relationship with longtime girlfriend..who somehow is entitled to half his assets even without being married as result of how long they've been together.
