Choe’s work as a visual artist spans pop culture and entertainment, encompassing everything from album covers for Jay-Z to music videos and museum shows. Also famed for writing, directing and appearing in many VICE shows, Choe first achieved renowned success as a muralist after creating work for Facebook’s first Silicon Valley offices in 2005.
Not sure what he has planned. The release notes: "For the first time ever in the history of the Houston Bowery Wall, Choe will share this monumental experience with a diverse group of community members who have never before had an opportunity to participate on a public project of this scale."
His completed mural will be up through October.
