On one of my graf sightseeing-tours I discovered this SERIOUS piece.
Man I was starting to think
Chicago was disblessed in the graffiti department but
As I'm cruisin on Lakeshore back home I realize,
I knoow this dude!
Over the next two weeks my brain kept itching over this, because I just KNEW I'd seen work by this writer somewhere... & then finally I remembered - El Mac has a pic up with a mural right next to this dude spraying in action!
So, I e-mailed the Mac (not really expecting a response, but hey on the offchance he knew & Voila! he responded & promptly sent me a link to the mysterious artist--> Victor Reyes.
...thanks to El Mac for acquainting me with said sir!
Def. added to the favorite artist list!

Korean at heart but Los Angelican by birth,
Choe has traveled & worked in incredibly interesting,
as well as dangerous nooks of this planet.
Rep of Congo
His style ranges from vulgar to extremely aesthetic.
I was confused,
as I was, as usual searching for Choenewness on the web &
Mac work would pop up randomly.
They colabo once in a while...
I'll leave my Mac-obsession -rant to myself &
just throw this link at you so you can
experience for yourself...
...thanks at this point, to that certain somebody that introduced me to Mac ;)
His first solo show was at a small ice cream shop
on Melrose Avenue of Los Angeles' westside, called Double Rainbow,
where his show was supposed to run a month, but stayed up for 2 years,
constantly changing after pieces started selling better than the ice cream. (-Wiki)
If you don't know him for nothing,
you still can't say you haven't come across
Choe's Whales AT LEAST 8297414.3 times?
