Many have heard the news recently about a graffiti artist who painted the walls of Facebook's offices in 2005 and accepted stock instead of cash in exchange for his work. Today, that artist is worth more than $200 million by virtue of the stock he owns. His name is David Choe and here he is in an interview with Barbara Walters from a few days ago. David had a measure of notoriety before his sudden thrust into uber fame. There's quite a few videos about him on YouTube that have been up for several years. He was quite a controversial figure. You can view some of them here. I enjoy seeing the success of others, especially fellow artists, and I hope that David can find balance in his life now that he's famous.
