TODAY, Los Angeles based painter, illustrator, DVDASA host, and entertainer, David Choe is opening his first exhibition in almost 4 years at Museo Universitario del Chopo in Mexico City, Mexico. The show consisting of a giant colorful mural in Choe’s signature “dirty style” looms over a new collection of collage sculptures, found object installations and a great number of watercolors and paintings that he’s produced in an incredibly short period of time.
Choe’s new body of work, bearing the spirit and weight of his 4 years of silence seem to explode with aggressive colors, textures and details. His characters shaped by his whimsical sense of humor and delicate techniques maintain Choe’s reputation as a master painter of his generation and does not disappoint.
