david choe

older works:

below are works from his solo show at jonathan levine gallery,
about a year ago, which i was fortunate to see :

a soy sauce drawing he did in prison in japan :

david choe's works, to me, are the epitome of effortless and fearless.
the unedited exploration of all things artistic possible in his reach,
and the rawness and vulgarity of it all, as a result,
which are almost tangible in his works...
that in itself is so cathartic and inspiring for me.
and that energy was really tangible in person.

i always think it must be so much fun to create the way he does.
to (seemingly) not care or overthink about what to create, but to just do it.
it really feels cathartic just thinking about it.

+ his blog here.
+ buy cursiv (my first encounter with him) here at GR.
