David Choe “Character Assassination” @ Fifty24SF

10 Feb

David Choe opening. Line down the block. Half hour wait. Furiously energetic works in “Character Assassination” show at Fifty24SF. My favorite piece “Deathblossom” was actually made for and shown in Choe’s April 2009 “Deathblossom” show at PYO gallery in China. “Character Assassination” is somewhat of a chaotic mishmash with his work taking different directions. Some pieces, as I named earlier, are more detailed and elegant while others possess a harsh and dark emotional quality. He painted the gallery walls black and did a bit 0′ graffiti to to top it off. And I’m wishin the Hendrix piece wasn’t a print!! Amazing all the same.

Show is on view at Fifty24SF until March 24, 2010.
