Here are pictures from a private viewing of David Choe’s current exhibition, “Nothing to Declare”. The show displays new paintings, drawings and sculptures for the epic 8,000 sq ft space. Inspired by his own experiences, Nothing to Declare presents Choe’s personal vision of the world. The exhibition opened on April 23 and will run for a calendar month, closing on May 23.

David Choe: Nothing to Declare
320-330 North Beverly Drive
Beverly Hills, CA 90210

Lazarides Gallery is pleased to announce David Choe’s return to LA after a six-year hiatus from exhibiting in his old stomping ground. The extremely prolific Choe has been hard at work creating new paintings, drawings, and sculptures for the 8,000 sq ft space in Beverly Hills.

Driven by an unquenchable thirst for life, Choe saps every possible drop of experience – good or bad – out of his tremendous adventures. From incarceration in a Tokyo jail to hitchhiking down the Mississippi River via paddleboat, freight train hopping city to city and hunting for dinosaurs in the Congo jungle, David weaves these encounters into his work projecting a dramatic and fantastical, often sexually explicit, vision of the world.

As one of the most technically proficient artists around today, no media is left untouched. Utilizing a combination of spray paint, oil, acrylic, watercolor, gouache and urine, Choe works his magic on wood, cardboard, polyurethane and canvas. From the artist who first exhibited in an ice-cream parlor, expect no less than a sensory melting pot of life seen through his eyes:

“I will take all my love all my hate all my pain all my rage, all my suffering and all my skills and experience I’ve collected over the years everything I’ve learned in every medium from watercolors to oils to spray paint I’m gonna express everything I feel about this city and what it is to live and die and be born again in the city of angels….” David Choe 2010
