Graf Artist David Choe Banks $200 Million off Facebook Stock

This is crazy!!!!


It used to be that graffiti writers looked for a quick glimpse of their work in a major motion picture, television commercial or magazine advertisement as the pinnacle of getting up… forget all that now. David Choe just changed the game forever.

When “dirty style” pioneer Choe was offered the opportunity to bless Facebook headquarters with his art seven years ago, I can only assume he jumped at the chance for a hard-earned several thousand in cash for his efforts (though at the time, he dubbed Facebook “stupid and pointless” – wonder how he feels now). Choe instead chose the equivalent in Facebook shares as compensation rather than take the money and run, and following yesterday’s insane $5 billion stock exchange flotation, dude is set to cash in $200 motherfucking million dollars.

iLike


Levi’s continues to promote the opening of its recent flagship store in Paris on the iconic Champs-Elysées. After having worked for the opening with Pedro Winter of Ed Banger Records and James Murphy, they have now teamed up with graffiti artists André and Shepard Fairey to produce some limited edition trucker denim jackets. Similar to the jackets that we have already seen last year for the ‘Art on the Streets’ exhibition at the MOCA in Los Angeles, these are the most classic denim jackets by Levi’s with custom embroideries placed on the back.

MirraCo x Dee & Rickey BMX Bike

I was just talking about designers Dee & Ricky iLike all there work.. check out this Bmx bike they did Mirraco #dope

“BMX and fashion aren’t normally used in the same sentence, but back in early 2011 Nigel Sylvester introduced Mirraco to fashion and accessory designers Dee & Ricky with the idea of collaborating to create a BMX bike that ignored the current style of bike graphics and instead, took a fresh approach.

Dee and Ricky had previously collaborated on an accessories line that incorporated a favorite childhood toy, Legos. They’ve been seen on celebrities such as Pharell Williams and Kanye West. The twin brothers then went on to collaborate with G-Shock to make their Lego inspired watch, and followed that up with a sneaker deal with Pony.

Their latest collaboration is with BMX icon Dave Mirra, where the brothers designed a limited production bike with a white frame, cheetah print seat, lime green chain and gold and pastel colored parts. A decal sheet with multi-colored letters is included so you can customize it to your liking. It’s their take on a fashionable way to avoid the hustle and bustle of NYC transit. Whether you love it or hate it, you have to admit it’s both stylish and unique.”
