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.
