David Choe: Art Millionaire


Have you heard about the dude who painted Facebook HQ in exchange for some shares in the then fledgling company? Well, David Choe is about to come into some $200 million dollars when the social networking site goes up for public trading next month. Despite not being a fan of the idea in its early inception, Choe chose shares over cash when given the job, and so the street artist will be rich. Very, very, very rich.

The original painting for Facebook HQ, commissioned by Sean Parker was said to be quite 'rude'. Choe apparently isn't shy of a graphic image or two, although they have since moved offices. To see the man in action at the new offices of Zuckerberg's behemoth, check the footage below. They say don't hate the player, hate the game.... But damn!
