Never boring, and always pushing buttons, David Choe is endlessly stimulating. In this interview from the “Dithers” DVD, you get a glimpse of the man behind the art, and the cleverness you witness as he speaks becomes amplified when viewed in the context of his masterful paintings.

Today, to kick off the second installment of the Juxtapoz 15th Anniversary Art Auction, we get down and dirty with artist David Choe. Images of sex and violence, heartbreak, and despair--all infused with a dark sense of humor--are only a sampling of themes that permeate his work.

Just to make it all crystal clear, we're reminding you once again that our big 15th Anniversary Art Auction is being held online at CharityBuzz.com in two waves. Why? Because we got so much stunning artwork, we thought it would be better to break it up so you all had less artwork to cull through. This Dave Ellis piece (who will be in our upcoming December 2009 issue) is part of the first wave, and already has multiple bids.

The work of Rob Sato and Joseph To (Juxtapoz #104) is now on display in a showing curated by longtime friend, David Choe. Both these artist's unique renderings are simultaneously humorous, beautiful, and bizarre. We'd expect nothing less from these guys.

KQED’s art program, Spark, profiled David Choe (Juxtapoz cover #72) in this video segment the artist recently posted on his blog, stating, “See how skinny I was when I got out of jail in this clip, KQED just sent to me!” True, Choe is the contemporary art world’s favorite badass, having survived time in a Japanese jail, amongst many other extreme situations. We see these as fuel for his amazing artistry. ”I’ve had the door shut on my face so many times. Rejection, rejection, rejection. And I don’t really care to get my art critiqued. And I don’t really care what you think about it,” Choe states in the video. “No one goes to museums anyways, so it’s this whole attitude and I just steal a can of paint and go out and paint all this stuff of the freeway and a you know, a thousand people will see it before 8 o’clock on the 101 freeway than the 10 or hundred people that would have ever seen it over the course of a month in an art gallery.” Word. Speaking of gallery work, get all the info on Choe's upcoming solo in China, Deathblossom, at PYO Gallery here.
