    David Choe is a Korean American artist from LA. He dropped out of artschool to become a graffiti artist which is hella bad-ass. He’s also a fucking thief, and has been arrested from vandalism to assault. He’s been to some of the most dangerous places in the world like The Republic of Congo, and the Gaza strip. Right now, he’s currently homeless and according to himself “making good art and bad music”.

Choe got arrested for punching an undercover detective. He spend 4 months in solitary confinement, so he couldn’t draw normally. Guess how he drew his pictures in the jail? Soy sauce and his own piss. Pretty amazing actually.(Maybe NSFW)

That’s a lot of inspiration for an artist. I don’t think he’ll run out of shit to draw. Did I mention he likes to draw tits?  Also, he can draw with Cheeto dust. He has extensive skill in every fucking medium. He has fucking awesome murals Choe does what he wants to do. He’s a pretty cool guy too. You should check out his blog. Pretty trippy guy.

Watch it in H:D. We need more Asian-American artists. That is all I’m going to say. His MyFace.

  • David Horvath along with his lovely Korean wife Sun-Min Kim, made Uglydolls, which are designer toys.
Awesome.

Awesome.

The whole thing all started when David sent to his (to-be)wife letters saying “I Miss You” and he would put a little cartoon of Wage(The orange one with the apron) near it. They later decide to make a doll out of Wage and that just grew and grew. Each one is fucking hand-made.

Apparently, they’re so ugly that they’re cute. o-o Their website is pretty trippy too.

DAVIDS ARE COOL, HYUKMINN OUT

asian art bad-ass: Takashi Murakami

He is the artist who made the Kanye West bear, the cover of Graduation(see above), and his trippy website called Universecity.(LOL ITS UNVERSITY)

He is the artist who made the Kanye West bear, the cover of Graduation(see above), and his trippy website called UniverseCity.(LOL IT'S UNVERSITY)

DISCLAIMER: I KNOW SHIT ABOUT FASHION OR ART

Takashi Murakami is a self proclaimed Otaku(LOL NERD). Murakami is also a contemporary artist. What do you get when you mix those 2 together?

Bad-assery(or is it bad-ass ness?). He kicks ass in a few ways that is not listed in this chart.

He is hella influential in the art scene(He was the only visual artist to make it to the time 100), and created a movement called “superflat“. Superflat is heavily influenced by Anime and Manga(esp. Hayao Miyazaki which created works of testicular art such as Pom Poko).

That may be or not be their ballsacks. More likely the former.

That may be or not be their ballsacks. More likely the former.

“Murakami’s style, called Superflat, is characterized by flat planes of color and graphic images involving a character style derived from anime and manga. Superflat is an artistic style that comments on otaku lifestyle and subculture, as well as consumerism and sexual fetishism.” from Wikipedia

He takes “low” art and repackages it and sells it to the highest bidder at “high” art auctions such as Christie’s, like Andy Warhol. Now Andy Warhol rates pretty high on the bad-assery scale, he has a cool band named after him(I HOPE THIS IS NOT OUR 15 MINUTES). That’s pretty bad-ass as Murakami’s works are some of the most desired in the world. Pretty bad-ass considering he can make alot of money doing his thang, y’know what I mean. Doing wahhht he lieks and making loadZ of cash money records is bad-ass, dog.

He sold a figure of a anime-syled charecter with blond hair(LIKE SUPER SAIYIN GOKU, YOU KNOW WHAT I’M SAYING?) pleasuring himself (i. e. JACKING THE FUCK OFF), and ejaculating a white lasso like object, holding the rope in the style of a cowboy. You have to see it for yourself. (EXTREMELY NOT SAFE FOR WORK) It was only expected to sell at 3,000,00 to 4,000,000 dollars which is basically 12,000,000 chicken McNuggets. However it sold for a fucking 16,000,000 dollars which is like 64,000,000 Chikin MikuNegetto. Selling a figure of a cumming Goku, which rigid rope-cum for 16 million is bad-ass. The piece is named “My Lonesome Cowboy” which is a very suggestive name. The name’s even bad-ass. Another one is of a female called “Hiropon” which means “I’ don’t know Japanese” in english. This is similiar in style to “My Lonesome Cowboy” and is NSFW too. To view it, click here.

You know what else is bad-ass? Purses. Bitches love purses.

Bitches love the Louis Vuitton.
