Harry Kim’s highly anticipated documentary on street art’s favorite badass, David Choe, finally debuts Saturday, June 21st as part of the Los Angeles Film Fest at Majestic Crest Theatre.
Dirty Hands: The Art & Crimes of David Choe chronicles the life of this renegade artist’s triumphs, struggles, and self-described “bullshit life.” Los Angeles artist David Choe’s kaleidoscopic work can be playful, confrontational and sexually frank. His personal life is no less complicated, as revealed by close friend Harry Kim, who documented Choe’s life and crimes from 2000 to 2007. From the manic highs of commercial success and dinosaur hunting in the Congo to the self-destructive lows of Japanese jail sentences and bouts of self-doubt and depression, what begins as a gleeful portrait of a bad-boy artist slowly becomes a poignant celebration of one man’s journey, both artistically and spiritually, toward his own uncertain salvation.
Pictured above is one of our gems from Choe that we got from his last show at Gallery AD up in San Jose – “Party Hats and Double Dongs”. How can’t you love it with a name like that?!?!
