David Choe Snowman Monkey BBQ Book Flip-Through - nsfw


This is David Choe's epic new book, Snowman Monkey BBQ. I enjoy the fact that the shape of the book is super tall, and the pages are filled with energy from his multi-faceted lifestyle-paintings, watercolors, and nudes.

When GR2 opened in 2003, David Choe was the first exhibition. It was also his first exhibition in LA (I don't think this is a clue answer for the 100k). David helped remove my doubts on showing art. The crowd was tremendous, and it was a great evening that undoubtedly launched new artists and galleries.

In 2003, the art scene was quite different. Most of the galleries you frequent, were not around. There wasn't a culture of driving from place to place to see various artists opening nights on a saturday. If you came to GR2, that's where you stayed. 

Fast forward. We still hold exhibitions, and David Choe still comes back and participates. It's always an honor to be part of people's careers, especially his.

Yes, there is some nsfw content is in here. David Choe will be signing tomorrow at GR2. See our previous blogpost.
