Upper Playground Presents Dirty Hands: The Art and Crimes of David Choe

David Choe is a favorite amongst all of us here at Upper Playground. We have witnessed his progression as an artist over the years, through his recurrent involvement with the company. In this 3-part interview series by Walrus TV, David Choe shares his thoughts from everything on how he got his start using spray paint, to his diverse techniques of warfare. These short form interviews give you a glimpse of the man behind the art, and the cleverness you witness as he speaks becomes amplified when viewed in the context of his masterful paintings.

The Walrus TV interviews are a taste of what’s to come in the upcoming viewing of Upper Playground Presents - Dirty Hands: The Art and Crimes of David Choe. In this award winning film, Choe’s hard work and radical antics have been recorded by Harry Kim, who follows David Choe's trail, documenting eight years of mayhem and artistic awesomeness. The film helps to express Choe's unwillingness to grow up, his struggle to make it as an artist and his fight to hold on to his sanity for his life and burgeoning art career. The film is part of the San Francisco Asian American Film Festival and Bay Area residents can enter to win two sets of tickets to the film from Upper Playground.
