David Choe: Nothing to Declare
Hypebeast recently got the scoop on David Choe’s new show: Nothing to Declare. Choe is one of my favorite artists and i was very pleased to read he’s been doing so well… and articulating himself in his typical brute fashion. from Hypebeast:
Returning to a city that holds so many of his first memories, David Choe’s six year hiatus from Los Angeles comes with a vengeance. With a unique personality and fierce penchant for the extremes of life, this upcoming showcase is undoubtedly one of the Korean artist’s most anticipated showings to date. Over the last few years, David Choe’s life experiences have included incredible highs and lows. With the exhibition titled “Nothing to Declare”, the undeniable talent of David Choe will manifest itself over multiple mediums ranging from spray paint, oil and acrylic to the absurd in urine. All this will take center stage at the 8,000 sq ft Lazarides Gallery in Beverly Hills as the most intense of David Choe’s emotions are replicated through a common theme of his feeling towards Los Angeles. We had the opportunity to ask the artist a few questions which garnered some interesting answers to say the least which probably is quite indicative of the artist’s approach to life and his subsequent passion for art. Some of the answers may offend some.
